    Favorites Organizer

    Hello,
    Can anyone recommend a favorites / bookmark organizer? My favorites are getting a little out of control and it would take hours to reorganize it, as I did once, into the appropriate folders. I've looked at some of the ones out there but I think some have too many bells and whistles.
    I'm just looking for something simple that will look for duplicates, mark those that don't exist anymore, and suggest a "like kind" folder to put it in. Maybe what I'm thinking of doesn't exist?

    What are you folks using?
    Thanks
    Louise

    Hi Louise

    My own biased freeware favorite for Favorites is described in <post#=386240>post 386240</post#>.

    Other <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15>ware I use frequently with my myriad of links includes:

    AM-DeadLink
    FavSearch
    FavOrg (now requires subscription to PC Mag site)

    Louise,

    I second Alan's recommendation for AM-Deadlink. I have used it for a long time and well satisfied with it.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Bob,
    I seem to remember using that one a very long time ago. I think it's time to bring it out of retirement!

    Thanks again,
    Louise

    Re: Favorites Organizer

    Are these specifically for IE, or can they be pointed towards other browsers?

    Leif,
    AM-Deadlink is also compatible with IE, Opera, Mozilla and Netscape.

    Louise,
    You're right.
    Deadlink has been around for some time. Now there is an updated and faster version available.

    Hi Leif

    Am-Deadlink and URLBase can both be used for "other" browsers, as well as IE. I think the others are IE only.

    As I point out in <post#=386240>post 386240</post#> I have used URLBase to produce a single "melded" database of every old bookmarks file and Favorites folder scattered over my HD. You can then use AM Deadlink to check for the dead ones, then export whatever part of the database you want, for whatever browser you like.

    If you use multiple browsers, there are also programs for keeping URLs in sync., but I've not tried them. In fact, with URLBase, there is no real need for a separate program - you can do it all from within.

    Alan
