Markster 2.8 – Store bookmarks centrally instead of syncing.

Markster 2.8

Markster keeps your internet bookmarks in a central store. People use Markster because either:

  • The internal bookmarks facilities (Bookmarks Bar, Bookmarks Menu, Favorites Bar, etc.) in their web browser(s) do not meet their feature expectations.
  • They use more than one web browser, and prefer to keep all their bookmarks in a separate app, independent of the web browsers, instead of syncing the browsers’ internal bookmarks facilities together.

When Markster users want to visit a bookmark they have previously stored, or add a new bookmark, instead of reaching for the Bookmarks Bar or Bookmarks Menu in the browser, they bring up Markster’s Floating Menu. Markster provides three ways to do that:

  • Global Keyboard Shortcut, for example Cmd-Shift-D.
  • Dock Menu
  • Status Menulet (right side of Menu Bar)

The keyboard shortcut and/or status menulet are enable/disabled in Markster’s preferences.

What’s New

Version 2.8:

  • Some housekeeping operations, particularly some during application launching, are now performed on a secondary thread. This improves performance and responsiveness slightly, but mostly it was done in case there is more than one user who sees macOS sometimes hang in these operations, for reasons unknown.
  • * Restored reliability of 'Edit', 'Cut' and then 'Paste' which sometimes failed in the current version of macOS.
  • The various change types shown in a document’s tab 'Reports', 'Sync Log' are now better explained, in tool tips and in the Help Book sec. 4.4.
  • Fixed a bug which sometimes caused a crash if two .bmco document windows were open while edits were made in the 'Preferences' or 'Manage' Browser Extensions window.
  • Removed all functions and user interface supporting the now-defunct 'Delicious' aka bookmarking service.
  • Fixed a bug, introduced in version 2.5, which prevented proper automatic recovery from some corrupt database files.
