The popular and award-winning bookmark manager now available in a native Intel version for the latest OS X with support for Retina displays.
URL Manager Pro allows you to manage your bookmarks independent from a web browser, yet use your bookmarks with any web browser, like Safari, Firefox, Chrome etc.
You can create and save several separate bookmark documents and you can access them all from the systemwide bookmarks menu.
Using a systemwide bookmarks menu, you have access to your bookmarks in any app or web browser.
You can also bookmark the current web page directly to URL Manager Pro from within your favorite web browser. On Yosemite, URL Manager Pro features a Share extension to bookmark the current web page.
In the URL Manager Pro documents, you can manage your bookmarks easily with drag and drop. You can add notes and colors to your bookmarks. You can also view your bookmarks in any font and size you want.
URL Manager Pro indexes its documents using Spotlight technology. This means that you can use Spotlight to find any bookmark, URL or term that you saved in URL Manager Pro documents.
You can import bookmarks from all popular browsers, like Safari, Firefox, Chrome etc. You can harvest URLs from text files and various other sources, like web pages, as well. You can also export your bookmarks to other formats like HTML, XML and XBEL.
Included is a User Manual (of 60 pages) in PDF format (see Help menu), which you can easily print out and read at your leisure.
- fixes a crash which occurred when closing a document with the search drawer open
- adds a Share extension for Yosemite (named: Add Bookmark)

Glad to see a Lion version - I've used URL Manager Pro for years and years and absolutely love it. Because I can use it across multiple browsers, my hundreds of bookmarks are always available. I store the data file on my iDisk and it's available identically on work and home machines. I can export an html version and access it on my iPad and iPhone. I recently started using the Menu Bar drop-down option and wonder why I never used it before-it's even faster than using the application window! In short, this has been one of those golden programs (sorry, now it's an App) that has always lived up to expectations and for which I am happy to pay the reasonable upgrade fees every several years when a major version change is offered.
URL Manager Pro, version 4.2 - Program is still unreliable even after the recent version 4.2 update. Sometimes it works well and other times when you want to access one of your saved Bookmarks all you get is the “beach ball of death”. The only way to get the program to start reliably working is to re-start your computer and “to hope and cross your fingers” that the program will allow you to access your bookmarks! Out of respect for others time and money I cannot recommend this program. Earlier versions (prior to the last two versions or maybe prior to Mountain Lion?) of the program were highly reliable and very useful - NOT ANYMORE. I did try to get support from the program creator but nothing he recommended fixed the program’s buggy behavior.

Potential, but only potential - This looks to be exactly the app I’ve been looking for: all of my bookmarked URLs on my different browsers integrated and accessible from all of those browsers. Better would be accessible from my iPhone as well. Nice and secure (well, kinda). But when I tried it, I can’t get it to import my Chrome bookmarks. I contacted the company, and they said there’s nothing wrong. Well, sorry, but there is something wrong. The result is a pretty dissatisfied customer with a sense of abandonment by the company. Conclusion: Stay away. Stay far away.
Not what I expected for the price. - It’s got a lot of potential and really has a lot to offer. It’s a little clunky though, especially compared to the smoother apps that people are writing with newer frameworks. I would like to see the following upgrades: • Allow drag and drop from a browser directly to a folder, not just the main list. • Allow drag and drop when sorting in the app when you drop it on the line item or name, not just the folder icon. • Create a right-click menu that lets you do things like the OS does, new folder, new bookmark, duplicate, copy, paste, etc. • Have someone name their new library when they first make it, then you can enable autosave by default. I kind of expected the app to autosave. • Let people test it first, you’ll likely get more feedback to make the app better. That’s all for now.
