Little Bookmark Box is available on the Mac App Store

Bookmark Manager for Mac OS X

Little Bookmark Box lets you easily store and manage interesting links while surfing in the World Wide Web. You have your bookmarks, saved and smartly organized, side by side with your browser.

Easily store interesting links while browsing the Internet.

Just drag a URL onto the menubar icon or simply click on the Browser Extension or Bookmarklet to create a bookmark in your Inbox. If you prefer to organize right now, simply drag the URLs in a specific box. When you add a bookmark, Little Bookmark Box will automatically check for duplicates to prevent bookmarking the same page multiple times.

Smart Boxes to automatically find and organize your bookmarks.

Smart Boxes lets you automatically find and group your bookmarks by certain criteria. For example, one smart box can grab all bookmarks created or visited today, while another gathers all bookmarks with a URL containing "youtube". All smart boxes are automatically updated if you add, change or remove bookmarks.


You can add tags (keywords) to classify your bookmarks. Tagged bookmarks can be found again by browsing, searching or filtering (Smart Boxes). You can use tags as an additional way to manage your bookmarks.

Support for bookmark services.

You can send your bookmarks, either automatically or manually, to Instapaper, Pocket or Pinboard for reading, everywhere you are.

Browser Extension or Bookmarklet.

One click and the page you are currently viewing will be bookmarked in your Little Bookmark Box app. Together with Smart Boxes, it is the fastest way to store and organize your bookmarks.

Your bookmarks, neatly arranged, in one place.

Do you have some bookmarks in browser "A", a few in browser "B", some on your Desktop or collected in folders? With Little Bookmark Box, your bookmarks are stored in one place, whether you want to save it just temporary for reading it later or to keep it.

Works unobtrusively, side by side with your browser.

Little Bookmark Box was designed to work besides your browser, so access or drag and drop your bookmarks is more comfortable. If you don't want to see the window all the time, Little Bookmark Box can automatically hide itself if another app is activated.

You can sort bookmarks within each box differently.

You can sort each box by different criteria. For example, your Inbox by date created and another box by the date of last visit etc. Little Bookmarks Box remembers the sorting order for each box.

Several ways to access and search your bookmarks quickly.

You can quickly browse and open selected bookmarks from the list or simply click on a box and use the bookmarks menu. Enter some text into the search field and the result will be displayed instantly. Or just use type-select to jump to a box or bookmark.

Editable bookmarks (title, url, note, tags).

Add a note or change the title of a bookmark to something more descriptive. See the date created, when you last and how often visited a link easily.

Remembers the app used to open a bookmark.

Sometimes, you might want to open a bookmark with a certain brower. Your Little Bookmark Box remembers the app selected to open a bookmark. So the next time, just click on the bookmark and you're done.
