Power Favorites is a bookmark manager for Windows that helps you organize and synchronize your bookmarks. It takes bookmarks from Internet Explorer, Firefox or Opera, merges them into one file, and automatically synchronizes them between computers. You can use it to detect dead links and duplicates if you have many bookmarks.

Each bookmark can be personalized with notes and tags. The fast, integrated search function makes it easy to locate your bookmark. The hot list and recent list folder allow you visit the bookmark you frequently visit quickly. You can also view your bookmarks by tag list and tag clouds, and easily share them or mail them to your friends.

I use Advanced URL Catalog to organize my bookmarks. This bookmark manager has a very neat gui and works perfectly with vista.

to get i working on vista just change the compatibility settings.

Steps on how to change the compatibility settings:
Right click on the shortcut,
click on compatability,
then click run this program for: windows xp service pack 2.

or something like that for any program that isnt built for vista.

Here's a suggestion of how I set up without having to use this.

Foxmark in Firefox. IE7Pro in IE. Opera Link in Opera. Then I set up a scheduled task to automatically run and synchronize them all using Bookmark Bridge.

Since Bookmark Bridge does not support Firefox 3 yet, I also install an alpha version of Foxmark for IE. So now I have fully synchronized bookmarks in all 3 browsers on 3 computers (home, office, notebook) and I can also access them online at Foxmark, IE7Pro, and Opera Link.

Waiting for a new Bookmark Bridge that supports Firefox 3... Combined with Foxmark, that's just powerful.

I uploaded a new version on my web site. The download url is here.

It added the feature to run with Vista and fixed some bugs.The issue for #52 should be fixed in this version too.

I've tested importing the bookmarks for FF2. There should be no problem. Importing the bookmarks for FF3 is still under developing. It will not take too long.

Thanks for all of your comments. Please feel free to email me at desksware##gmail.com if you have any questions or suggestions.

Don't listen to the naysayers here.

This is an EXCELLENT piece of software.

This is simply a recoding and rewrite of the now abandoned software Powermarks. Powermarks had a huge hard core following as the best bookmark manager because it works as a database rather than an unwieldy listing of links or hierarchical systems.

Considering that you can directly import from Powermarks into this software shows that they knew what they were doing.

Best way to use this software is to setup the hotkeys properly. For example, whenever I want to bookmark a page I use Ctrl+Alt+A and it brings up the dialog to bookmark the page, pull the keywords and add keywords of my choosing.

I've got over 4000 bookmarks in this program and I can find exactly what I need in SECONDS.

If you have as little as 100 bookmarks or if you are only making an ad hoc list, my tip would be to keep that list as a notepad file.

Then use a freeware notepad replacement like GetDiz or Notepad Light which offer the possibility to launch urls directly from the page. Impossible to make it simpler than that.

GetDiz is ingeniously simple and has the same author as the very powerful Linkman from Outertech. I run Linkman's latest version on Vista and encounter no problems.

However, I use Linkman mainly for maintenance of large databases. For ease of use I prefer Bookmark Buddy that I mentioned earlier. Both these bookmarking solutions have been around for years. Personally, I find it worth while to pay $25 for a solution that lasts some time.

To #62, Mark

I'm afraid that after two years of Vista being the next development of the Windows dynasty, you, Mark, are not entitled to issue a program that HAS to run 'As an Administrator'. You just may not do this. If every program out there did this then seurity would not exist at any level. You are just not entitled.

Can you handle the truth?

#79, G, that's interesting. Sometimes I set a Favorite for interesting information I run across, most of the time I just save an MHTML copy, sometimes I do both. Apart from the IE7 bug where it doesn't mark MHTML files for indexing, the MHTML ifilter is buggy, but most of the time it works well enough for me to find stuff via Windows Search (and I can use other search tools which don't use the ifilter). Saving a local copy avoids problems with the information disappearing from websites. MHTML can embed local copies of images, etc., but unfortunately, IE7 generally doesn't. If you save as Webpage, Complete, you'll get local copies as individual files in a folder structure, but it doesn't save some things and may not display correctly (and I hate creating folders associated with separate HTML files, even though Windows has special handling to keep them linked). I've tried Cuil before, it generally doesn't find much of anything compared to Google, and what it does find usually isn't very good.

OK, I installed this on Vista. Since Activate created virtual entries, I re-ran it as an Administrator, although I'm not sure that matters because the entries were probably per-user anyway. I set Power Favorites to run as an Administrator prior to first use. You have the option whether or not to create a del.icio.us account, and can do so later. It recognizes Chrome and can launch it, but won't import from or export to it. IE Favorites import but the properties don't match Vista's. It sets the default tags based on the pathnames, and the default description is the same as the title. This doesn't match Vista's Description field, and Windows Search will search the pathnames anyway. Of course, other fields likes Notes and Ratings don't exist. It installs 3 icons to the tray, two for setting Bookmarks. However, they don't work, probably due to Protected Mode. You have manual control over import, export, and synchronization. I can't recommend Power Favorites at the present time, at least not for Vista users. The current version is 1.7.1.4. The About box opens in the middle of the desktop, rather than in the middle of the current monitor. I also noticed something interesting about the way Vista apparently handles .URL shortcuts. If the actual URL is the same, it will list the names of all shortcuts associated with that URL in the tooltip within IE7. Outside of IE7, it will list just one of the shortcut names in the tooltip, which may not match the selected shortcut name.

So far, proves to be a very handy program in Windows XP SP2 to keep track of recently visited net sites.
Pros: Quick additon to selected bookmark folder via Firefox right click.
Recent bookmark list very useful.
Right click on bookmark to add to Power Favorites "Hot" list.
Import from Firefox and IE works flawlessly.
Minor Cons: Edit copy and paste don't seem to function.
Would be helpful to be able to move bookmarks up and down in "Hot" list.
Have not tested in Vista.

Hello again,

I was trying to get/install/run Linkman on my computer so I could properly add it to my review as an alternate software to Power Favorites.

In the end I refused to install Linkman on my computer for the following reasons (yes I am paranoid):

When I accessed the download link for Linkman freeware, my K9 Web Protection Alert came up with this: [Linkman Download Link] is blocked because it is currently categorized as Arts/Entertainment, Spyware/Malware Sources and Software Downloads (it was blocked cause of the Spyware/Malware Sources category). I figured this was a false positive, so I ignored it and by passed the warning.

When I tried to scan the Linkman file with my Kaspersky Anti Virus, Kaspersky crashed (don't know what was up with that).

I went online and scanned the file via scanner.virus.org and this is what I got:

The following represents the test results from the virus scanners used by the Virus.Org scanning service when it performed the scan on the file 'linkman_8909.exe'.

File: linkman_8909.exe
SHA-1 Digest: 2375f355d2a99dcd1933cb5e00dc49aff819d79f
Size: 3828856 bytes
Detected Packer: None
Status: Infected or Malware (Confidence 4.55%)

Of course, these could all definitely be false positives - most probably are false positives (4.55% confidence isn't very high at all) - but I am not willing to take such a risk for a program that only backups my bookmarks. Call me paranoid but even though some posters on GOTD.com say Linkman is good, I suggest staying away from it.

Personally I just synch my 4 PCs with Micro$oft synctoy.

Here's a neat trick you might like to try:

http://techennui.blogspot.com/2007/09/cool-google-enabled-search-of-all-your.html

- you can create a custom Google search engine that searches the pages you've bookmarked (or if you select the option, the full sites that your bookmarked pages come from). This is pretty helpful if like me you've bookmarked liberally for years and vaguely remember reading about something but can't quite remember where. I generally get better hits from my custom search engine for subjects I'm interested in that from vanilla Google.

Mark,

Thank you! This program works for me on Vista now. I will promptly review it to the fullest and post about it. For anyone interested, you can check it out here (please give me 30 mins to get a full review conducted). I will also attempt to give some feedback on Foxmarks, URL Gather and Linkman as alternatives to this software.

***I understand that posters before Mark mentioned running it as administrator, but they talked about
1) Installing it as administrator' (which sounded really odd to me)
and
2) Forcing it to run in XP compatibility then running as administrator.

To #62, Mark

I am really liking this piece of software, kudos to you. I do have a couple of questions though and a comment. Why does it show the browser icons after the search box? They do nothing when I left or right click on them. Also it would be helpful to me to be able to see from which browser the bookmarks/favorites originated from; it would be nice to see a column next to the hot column that denoted the browser by icon.

Also, did I miss it or is there a way to launch Power Favorites from the browser's tool bar?

ThankYou

Some updates to my comment #20 regarding Windows Search. Description and Notes show up on the Details tab of the URL Properties page, and URLs are set to index by Properties only, but the Description and Notes fields aren't being indexed. Not only is that a bummer, but AFAIK that stuff is supposed to be indexed. Of course, you can always add keywords to the Name field.

In Vista Explorer, you can select the Details pane to be visible (I think it is by default). It's an active pane, you can change values there. You can select the Description column to be shown, but not the Notes.

It's quicker to type type url than folder favorites (with natural language searching enabled), the difference being that type url will also find .URL files outside of the Favorites folder. Search results for URLs will sometimes be grouped under "Favorites and History" and sometimes under "Files", even when they are in Favorites (of course, they are files).

Typing favorites into the Start Search box provides a quick way to open Explorer to the Favorites folder, but curiously, it's grouped under "Programs" as well as "Files". Also curiously, the displayed path and views can be different between the two, but if you ask Vista for the full path, it's the same.

well I just installed it and tried it and already I don't like it.

I went to close it, it minimized to the task bar with no way to bring it back up except with the task manager, this is not a good thing.

it also gave no option to go resident, wither I wanted it to or not, again a big no no in my book, you want me to like your programs, DON'T prevent me from doing what I want.

I've had a bit of luck installing a few GOTD programs on an external drive, as I'm going to have to re-format my main drive soon. I wish I'd thought of that sooner, as I'm going to loose some really good GOTD programs. Anyone else had any luck installing to external drives?

I was ready to try this until I read about the del.icio.us account requirement. No thanks. I'm not even sure what del,icio.us is but I'm sure I don't want it. As for some calling others noobies because they don't have thousands of favorites, that is uncalled for. I don't have nearly that many because I prefer to type my favorites. How hard is it to type cnn.com, espn.com, cbs.com, etc, etc. The number of favorites you have does not equal the level of user you are.

Linkman and Bookmark Buddy are two very sophisticated bookmark programmes, both with freeware versions and with solutions for USB sticks. Compatible with all major browsers. Plenty of features. BBuddy for example provides the possibility to schedule next visit.

And I have tens of thousands of bookmarks.

To Terry_in_Texas (#45):
Yes, I have heard of del.icio.us. I even have their site in my bookmarks. I've been to the site to see what it is about, but it doesn't interest me as I don't have time for a lot of socializing sites like I have done in the past. Some of my previous comment was sarcasm. I was speaking in the interest of those who may be fairly new to the internet and not know what del.icio.us is.

To HD Hooker (#60):
Don't be a hypocrit. Whining about whiners is never helpful and it makes you look even worse than those you are complaining about. Negative criticism is often more useful than positive. It helps developers know what about their products needs improving.

And to those picking on Ashraf:
Why? He/She is only trying to be helpful and save some people some work in searching and such, which is more helpful than most others are who leave comments here.

A lot of people are talking about FireFox and what add-ons to use for what today's offer does and I agree that FF is not the only browser out there. I myself prefer Avant Browser and can't imagine switching to any other browser. Avant Browser is based on the IE engine and is therefore easily synced with the favorites/bookmarks in your favorites folder on Windows. In fact, if I delete or add a new bookmark in Avant, it is done so at the same time in the favorites folder.

Avant Browser itself has an online storage that will save your settings, Autofills and bookmarks. That means that if something happens to your computer and you have to reinstall Avant Browser, all you have to do is sign into your online storage account and Avant is instantly back to the way you had it before, with all your Autofills. Autofill is a website password saver built into Avant that lets you save and automatically sign into registered sites. I did mention the online storage is supposed to save bookmarks as well, but that never seems to work.

As far as saving a list of my favorites, that's easy. In Windows XP, if you have Favorites showing in your Start Menu, right-click on it and select Open. That opens the folder where all your favorites are located. Then, to make it even easier, click the Up button at the top to go to the folder that contains the Favorites folder. Then you can right-click on the Favorites folder itself and select Copy. Then you can Paste it into a flash drive or external hard drive (like me). Then you can just plug the flash drive or external into any computer for access to your favorites.

I didn't intend for this post to be so long, but I hope it is helpful to someone.

I am the developer of Power Favorites. I'd like to explain a few things about the program:

For vista users, Power Favorites needs "Run as Administrator" on Vista.

For users who care about privacy, you can use Microsoft's Sync Toy to sync the bookmarks with a flash drive.

I have no relationship with del.icio.us. It's an optional requirement if you'd like to share your bookmarks via del.icio.us.

Thanks for all your suggestions and criticisms. I will make the program better.

Yes, agreed David. Comparing bookmarks or their storage catalog folders is a vital procedure that all developers seem to have overlooked.

My bookmarks are a mess with some IE imports in FF still lying around. Why we can't have a to/from two-panel organiser like Total Commander for files, I don't know.

first off to #32 MikeG:

for the most part a "Trialpay" is a bad thing, normally requiring you to make an account with a credit card offer, or worse yet a porn site, they then get a kick back from the site or offer. IMO Trialpays are almost 99% bad news.

this program sounds a bit interesting,I'm going to give it a shot and see what happens, as others have said I have probably thousands of bookmarks, being an A+ computer tech, and having been on the internet since the early 90's, but the situation I most need a program to reliably help me with is comparing bookmarks, I have made many back ups of bookmarks over the years and now have dozens of bookmark files I want to condense into one file, and currently I am finding it hard to do so and am having to look link by link, importing to Firefox, link by link etc..

also to those who made fun of a single browser user, I use Firefox 99.99% of the time, occasionally I will use IE only when I find a site designed only for IE, like Microsoft.com

anyway just my opinion.

any one that knows of a bookmark comparing program, I would really appreciate any suggestions.

My apologies if this was already mentioned, but I'm very happy with LinkStash. (http://www.xrayz.co.uk/) It works with all the popular Windows browsers, has all the features of today's GAOTD, and I believe it works on Vista (although I can't figure out why people put up with that OS!). LinkStash is not freeware; its not over-bloated like some bookmark managers, but it is very comprehensive in what it does; and the author is very responsive to questions & suggestions. I give LinkStash an unequivocal thumbs-up! (Sorry, no opinion on Power Favorites, though.)

I have thousands of bookmarks so I am hoping this program will work better than some freeware bookmark managers & organizers I've tried.
This DID install and open without problem on my Vista Home Premium machine.

While I DO prefer managing bookmarks manually since I have so many that they are in categories and sub-categories, I have way too many bookmarks to easily check them for dead links, etc.

BTW when I've had a problem with a program running under Vista, 9 times out of 10 that program has run under Vista fine after I set the compatibility mode for the program to run under XP SP2 compatibility setting. I always try setting compatibility mode to XP SP2 and seeing if that works before concluding that a program will not run under Vista.

Regarding programs made by unknown developers, how can anyone logically expect to restrict themselves to only known developers, given the immense number of developers offering their software on the net? Also, every known developer starts out as an unknown, I remember when sysinternals was not well known and I liked their software back then, and look where they are at now! When I had my first computer (xt8088 for those who are aware of the dinosaur age of computers!) it was at a time when instead of the internet, people would dialup into local bulletin board services with 1200 or 2400 bps modems, DOS was the standard, GWBasic was the programming language, and a program called Norton Utilities by a developer named Peter Norton was considered very useful and worth having. Windows didn't exist yet. Today, who hasn't heard of Norton products (Peter Norton's company was sold to Symantec in 1990).
I remember when the advent of Windows 3.1 was first becoming news and the idea of an OS that didn't require you to type in DOS commands or have to use the DOS menu sounded amazing and somewhat hard to believe. And everyone knows where Windows went to from there!

The point is that every developer started out as an unknown and just because a developer is unknown, isn't a reason to think negative.

Why are people claiming this only works with storing your bookmarks on a public server? It gives you a choice if you want to or not. It still works if you opt out. This piece of software is great! Sync with most popular browsers, find and delete dups, manage bookmarks, add tags, etc.
