Magic Bookmarks

By Daniel Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009

This program offers a new way to store and launch multiple bookmarks, but organizing imported favorites is a totally manual process.

Magic Bookmarks' tiny, tabbed interface could use a bit more user instruction. The main window lists four sample Web sites with check boxes. Settings are minimal and include selecting IE 6, IE 7, Firefox, or Opera, and it supports multiple users with different favorites lists. We were pleased to find out that the program speedily opened single and multiple Web sites with a couple of clicks. We weren't exactly delighted with some of the other functions, however. The Edit Bookmark tab features two sections to manage categories and URLs, but you'll have to re-enter the URL in the new category then delete it from the old. There is an option to import bookmarks from your browser programs, but they're all added to the General Favorites folder and require manual placement also.

With no help file, we never figured out the purpose of the Save to File button, which didn't appear to do anything. Magic Bookmarks is free, but it needs a bit of tweaking to make it on our list of recommendations.

Developer's Description

Allows the user to save his favorite sites in very organized way and allow to open multiple sites from the same category in one click only. Another important value is that each user got its own bookmarks organized in its personal file under its user, and the switching of the user is done by two mouse clicks. Also Magic Bookmarks keeps the favorites organized without any bind to any browser (at any time you can open the bookmarks in FireFox and a second after you can open them in Internet Explorer), its simply keeps all the data to it self, and allows to open the desired sites with Internet Explorer, FireFox, or Opera.

Features: Multi user support (each user can have its own completely personal bookmarks). Very powerful tray icon mode (full control over the bookmarks). FireFox, Internet Explorer, and Opera support. Its possible to import your bookmarks from FireFox, Internet Explorer, and Opera. Perfect for portable purpose (USB flash disk).
