BookMacster - 2.9.9 - Organize and manage bookmarks, sync across browsers

BookMacster is a bookmarks manager for your Mac which plays nicely with iCloud Safari syncing, Firefox Sync, Sign In to Chrome, and Opera Sync. (Ours are the only non-Apple apps which can modify Safari bookmarks without corrupting iCloud data.) It can be used in one of three ways, or all three:

  • Manage Browser Bookmarks. Add alphabetizing and tagging. Verify, fix dupes, consolidate.
  • Cross-Browser Syncing. Sync bookmarks of Firefox, Chrome, Opera and more among all your devices.
  • Directly. Keep your bookmarks in one central store, accessible within web browsers.
  • Compatible with iCloud Safari syncing, Firefox Sync, Google Chrome’s Sign In. Bookmarks added to these apps on your Mac will show up in these apps on iOS or Andriod devices.
  • Import/export with Safari, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Vivaldi, iCab, Roccat, Pinboard, Diigo, and OmniWeb.
  • Easily organize with tags, hierarchy, or both.
  • Verifies bookmarks, fixes redirects, duplicates, can upgrade insecure bookmarks and remove URL cruft.
  • Sort (alphabetize) automatically when bookmarks are changed. You control which folders you want to be sorted or not sorted, how to sort them.
  • Supports multiple user profiles in Firefox and Google Chrome.
  • Scriptable to collect new bookmarks from NetNewsWire or similar apps.


Version 2.9.9:

  • Fixes failure to export to Safari 12.1, if the changes included one or more new folders. Safari 12.1 is apparently coming to macOS 14, probably in macOS 10.14.4 this week or next, and also appears to be in new installations of macOS 10.13.6. The changes in this version may also fix other issues which occur rarely with earlier Safari versions.
  • Separators exported to Safari (actually pseudo-separators since Safari does not support real separators) now play more nicely with current implementations of Safari and iCloud. The separators of existing Collections are migrated to the new form upon first being opened in this version. (The URLs of separators, instead of being empty strings, aare now of the form separator:// followed by a unique identifier. Although not shown in the Content View, this URL is exported to Safari. Safari 12.1 Beta has been seen to misbehave when bookmarks URLs are empty strings .)
  • Fixed bugs which occurred when running in macOS 10.10 or 10.11. Foremost is that automatic syncing works now. Also there are no more crashes upon closing some alert sheets or windows, such as the Sync Status Report*.
  • Round ? help buttons now work in earlier macOS versions the same as they do in macOS 10.14, opening to the relevant Help Book page on the internet, instead of showing The selected content is currently unavailable… in the very sadly broken Apple Help Viewer, which Apple has not been maintaining.
  • Fixed bug which caused the File > Reboot Sync Agent command to sometimes just do nothing (because an exception was raised internally).
  • Improved some code which may have been causing a rare crash during quit.


OS X 10.10 or later, 64-bit processor

  • CAN NOT DOWNLOAD: Some probably encounter the following error: This site can’t be reached’s server IP address could not be found. DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN. In this case, please use Google DNS and you will get rid of trouble.
  • If downloaded file can not be extracted (file corrupted...), please make sure you have downloaded the file completely and don't use Winzip, it sucks! We would recommend using The Unarchiver.
  • By reason, the App does not work and can not be opened. Mostly, just Disable the Gatekeeper, and you get rid of troubles.
