Bookmark Menu Extra

- The Bookmark Menu Extra -

With the Bookmark Menu Extra you have access to your bookmarks from within any application, including your web browser. The Bookmark Menu Extra is in the right part of your menu bar.

Using the Bookmark Menu Extra, you can add bookmarks, launch bookmarks, open bookmark files and switch between your bookmark files.

With URL Manager Pro you save your bookmarks in bookmark files that you create and have full control over. You can create and manage several bookmark files and have easy access to them via the Cabinet feature of URL Manager Pro (see the Tour).

I have a FAQ web page which can help you with some questions you might have. Please read it carefully. In particular, please note that your Cabinet and Startup Items folder should now be located in the Bookmarks folder in your Home directory.

URL Manager Pro 4.1 is Intel native.

Requirements: Mac OS X 10.5 or higher (i.e. Mountain Lion, Lion, Snow Leopard or Leopard).
