URLGather is pretty great. It is able to import bookmarks from IE, Chrome, Firefox or common bookmarks html files. The search function is fast. The portable aspect is a bonus and allows you to unify all your browsers from different systems.
A couple of issues and additions I would like to see to enhance this amazing tool.
1. When exporting the links as URL, if the description text string for URL exceeds 256 it should truncate it. Currently it pops up an error box notifying you of the length is too long, but after you close it it does not continue the progress bar just sits there.
It would be nice if it would allow you to change it on the fly, truncate it, then at the end create a log of those that match that condition.
2. To EDIT the an URL your currently have to right-click->property. It would be nice add a hot key like F2, similar to windows rename command, to quickly edit file names. This would improve the editing to one key thus allowing to user to modify content faster.
3. SAVEs - I notice that when you import bookmarks and do your editing that it does this all in memory until you exit the program then it saves everything to Record.UGR. It would be nice to either add a save button or have an option to have it save automatically every 5 min or adjustable time interval.
I like this program and hope it keeps being improved.
Get it, use it, rate it!
Possible to import books marks from Google Chrome and drag and drop between browser - Tested on Chrome and IE.
Just add google Chrome, then clik on File > Import from the browser you want to edit.
Different browser can import at the same time and drag and drop between them.
