Both EXE appear to be 64 bit

Probably a great tool, but .. how to get a .txt file of my bookmarks, furthermore, compatible with this software ...? I searched a lot, but I have not yet found the solution with Firefox: I only get a .json files... Or build itself the file with a text editor ? then you no longer need myFavs!

vmars316 on 2017-01-07 19:01

curly: now has 32 bit myFavs.exe & source
Guido76: You can just create a new myFavsLinks.txt with notepad . But be sure to
use the delimeter [ ] after each field: MenuName[]LinkDescription[]LinkAddress[] & also read the Help . But the best and safe way is to just add your links to myStarterLinks.txt example file . Then save it as (whatever) Guido76Links.txt .
Thanks

Thought I'd ask: does anyone know how URL Monit@r compares to Xenu Link Sleuth ATM? (http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=112)

tactictoe on 2016-03-12 02:38

Hi Midas. To answer your question. The comparison is not really a good idea. These softwares have two different goals in mind with a common task to achieve their respective goal. Xenu Link Sleuth ATM crawl a site given a URL and perform a complete site URL check with complete report on demand. And it does it very well. URL Monit@r on the other hand does also a verification of URL but its goal is bookmark managing whatever come has URL captured by the clipboard and it does its task very well. Verification of URL here is on a case per case or thru a given list or complete URL list via the integrated browser (Xenu can also import a list of URL). Both program check URL but for two different goals as I said before. However you can check evolution of URL Monit@r here http://www.geocities.ws/tactictoe/URLMonitor_Progress.html. It will include functionality of Xenu Link Sleuth ATM without challenging this excellent software or trying to superseed this software neither copycat the work of this excellent software. The story of URL Monit@r is not finished. It stills evolves. Anyway thank you for asking, it needed to be asked as some people might be confused. So if you need a temporary bookmark manager for long internet session research URL Monit@r is your software, on the other hand if you need to verify a whole website with report Xenu Link Sleuth ATM is your software. Please also note Xenu Link Sleuth ATM is very light in size where URL Monit@ar is more hungry in mass storage size because its modern icon driven needs for functionality. I could have go all the way with menu and speedbutton with little size glyph to reduce the size to 1Mb but it would have reduce the appeals of the software dramatically.

Thanks for answering, tactictoe. My curiosity was purely academic, issuing from considering the opportunity of enhancing this entry with mention of alternatives, as is customary here at TPFC. As the author of URL Monit@r, you'll have to concede the possibility of bias in your appraisal. :)

FavoritesView v1.32

Checker on 21 Mar 2014

FavoritesView displays the list of all your Favorties (of Internet Explorer browser) and bookmarks (of Netscape/Mozilla browsers) in a single page. Each line in the list specifies the title of the item, the URL address, the created/modified date of the bookmark item, and the folder name. You select one or more of these bookmarks, and then copy them to the clipboard, delete them (Only for Internet Explorer Favorites), export them to tab-delimited text file, HTML file, or XML file. FavoritesView also allows you to locate duplicate URL addresses in your Favorites/Bookmarks or find specific item by specifying the URL or the title.

cool,you can use select ".\Favorites" and carry your IE links around with you on a usb in the portable's folder.
Too bad it doesnt allow you to select your own default browser to launch links with.
I havent used IE or Firefox in a good long while :(

FavTool

FavTool (Internet Explorer Import and Export Favorites) is a small utility to convert Netscape Bookmark HTML files (used by Firefox) into Microsoft Internet Explorer favorites and vice versa. The latest versions of Internet Explorer do include an import/export wizard, but some IE-based browsers may not have this function, so this is still a handy tool to have around.

Category:
System Requirements: Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP

How to extract: Download the EXE to a folder of your choice. Launch favtool.exe.
