Linkman (short for Link Manager) is a bookmark manager that efficiently organizes large numbers of bookmarks. Linkman integrates with Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Opera browsers. Support for synchronizing bookmarks between browsers and among computers is also available. With a screenshot tutorial, an introduction video, and a comprehensive PDF manual, getting started has never been easier! You get the choice to manage your bookmarks by keywords only, folders only, or folders and keywords.
Let's face it -- the browser bookmark management was designed with the casual internet user in mind. But for some of us, links and bookmarks are a part of our daily work lives. Things start getting unwieldy when our bookmarks start numbering in the thousands (and for some folks, even ten thousands!). But thanks to the bookmark manager Linkman, bookmark management is a joy! Linkman stores your bookmarks in local, easily backup-able XML databases, and is known for providing 15 years of high data security.

Sync Bookmarks across all browsers and computers
With Linkman (both Lite and Pro editions) you can sync bookmarks across all of your browsers. If you add a new bookmark in one browser, for example Google Chrome, the bookmark becomes immediately synchronized, and you can access it through the Linkman Addons in Firefox, Internet Explorer and the Opera browser. With Linkman Pro you get additionally support to sync your Linkman XML bookmark databases between different computers. You can use most of the free synchronization services. Linkman Pro has build-in support for Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft SkyDrive, Syncplicity, Sky Backups, FilesAnywhere, Backblaze, SpiderOak, KeepVault, Wuala, and several others. Alternatively you can can install Linkman Pro on a USB stick (if you don't want to entrust your personal data to the Internet).
If you're headed someplace where you know you'll be using a computer you've never seen before, you can start Linkman Pro from the USB stick, and pick up just like as if you were sitting in your own office! Linkman bookmarks databases can be protected with a password to maximize your privacy. Since Linkman (both Lite and Pro editions) can maintain two separate databases at the same time, you have the option to place your private links into a second, password protected database, or separate your work-related and private bookmarks. Linkman will search both bookmark databases at the same time, directly from all the browsers.
Search features in the bookmark manager Linkman
The bookmark manager Linkman offers advanced search capabilities. Just start typing a keyword and results will appear in less than a second. Even if you have A MILLION links in your collection! If you're storing up to 100.000 links, search results are INSTANTANEOUS! You can combine wildcards (*keyword*) and operators: AND (default), AND NOT, OR, "-" sign in your searches. You can also search for phrases ("phrase") and utilize a powerful Search and Replace feature. Example: a search for bookmark manager -online will find all links containing the keyword bookmark AND the keyword manager, but NOT containing the keyword online.
You can easily backup bookmarks with Linkman. After you import bookmarks from Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome, Opera or start from scratch, Linkman will store your bookmarks in a XML database. The file location of the database is displayed in the middle of the main window. You can set a new location by selecting File | Save As from the menu. This way it's very easy to backup bookmarks. Just copy the Linkman database to your backup medium. Since Linkman allows you to use two databases at the same time (see screenshot to the left) make sure to backup both databases in that case. If the file path is too long and displayed with "..." just go with your mouse over the label to get the complete file name as a tooltip.
User defined bookmark data
Along the usual bookmark data elements like name, path, keywords, description and comments, Linkman offers you user defined bookmark data. This way you can store information specific to your needs. For example you can configure a combo box to display a list of languages and enter a website language for every of your bookmarks. Another example (useful for media editors) would be to take an extra memo field and name it review. All user defined fields can be also accessed when creating export templates. You get also the ability to configure the rating system. Define the minimum and maximum rating values, labels and colors as you like!
