Developer's Description

HyperCard stack opens any URL; full-screen notes
With one full-page, full-screen card for each URL, it--
  • Opens any URL in any browser; and enables instant switching among browsers;
  • Helps you keep very detailed notes on every one;
  • Generates a clickable category list, showing number of URLs in each category, and then sublists of each URL therein, clickable to the URL card itself;
  • Enables easy massaging of outdated URLs without losing the original, needed for archival search in "The Wayback Machine";
  • Can create cross referenced links between duplicate or separate URL cards;
  • Can sort URL cards: by title, by URL, by category, by first visit, by last visit, by web-page date, by browser, by your "star" rating, by 'who': author, webmaster, etc.;
  • Plus other tweaks and knacks:
    • 6 specialized 'Find' buttons for the stack, besides HyperCard's own cmd-F
    • Toggle button (back and forth between 2 cards)
    • Special button for automatic copy-paste of old URL in The Internet Archive's "Wayback Machine" for quick retrieval of defunct websites
    • Button for automatic date plus note-entry position at start or end of Notes field
    • Automatic re-formatting hot-key for copy-pasted material (ever try to copy white type from a web page?)
    • Any card can include other hotlinks to Web besides its main URL
    • Has a large-format design (7 1/2 x 10 3/4) with vivid user-friendly lettering and buttons
    • Stack window is slightly smaller than screen; remains always open for instant switching between it and one or more open browsers
    • Slow-or-fast 'skim-card' option, for the whole stack, or given category
    • Choice of browser on every card, independent of any other cardÃ?¢??s existing or re- chosen browser
    • Can import a categorized [stack] of URLs from an HTML list of your existing "bookmarks" or "favorites"
    • Can export URLs to a 2-column HTML list: category titles, and URLs themselves by category
    • Automatic back-up prompt when quitting
and all this in less than a megabyte, for 1,500+ URL-cards in my current stack. (Those 1,500 URLs not included in download ...)
