BookmarksX is an advanced version of bkBrowser.  BooksmarksX lets you catalog website bookmarks with snapshots and keep track of their Google PageRanks.  Users can rate each website and write notes about it with styled text (font color, font style, font size...).  Users can also access Alexa Traffic Details and QuantCast Audience Profile for the selected URL or domain.






Mac software BookmarksX



Just take two steps to make bookmarks.


  1. Create a bookmark folder.
  2. Drag and drop a favorite icon or URL text selection from any web browser onto BookmarksX's drop box.


Every time the user presses the Create button after dragging and dropping a favorite icon or a piece of URL text onto the drop box, BookmarksX will analyze the URL and automatically record its Google PageRank.  BookmarksX also allows the user to look up Google PageRanks of as many as 100 URLs simultaneously.

Resizing web browser's window


Having trouble keeping the same dimensions of web browser's window?  Whenever you want to take a snapshot of a website, the dimesions of web browser's window are different.  It happens all the time, right?  BookmarksX can read the settings of popular web browsers (Safari, Camino, Opera and Firefox) and let you change their window dimensions.
