myFavs bookmark manager

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

etc

5. Sorry, haven't tried myFavs :(
Hmm... ,
(1.)A rather brash statement for someone who hasn't even tried the program .
(2.)Enter the bookmark info , & click Add-Link .
(3.)Opens in default browser .
(4.)Yes .
(5.)Give it a try , or at least read the Help .

Thanks
1. I understand that you are very eager to add myFavs to the TPFC database
2. Have read your website and didn't feel the need to try it
3. Personally I also don't like the interface
4. It lacks a lot of features

(2.) "and didn't feel the need to try it ."
Maybe others will like to try it .
I started this website in 2004 for a few reasons:
I wanted to share my collection with like-minded people.
I thought the idea behind TPFC was to provide a place where people can come to see what's out there , in the way of freeware and portable . And to give their feedback .

(3) "I also don't like the interface"
Maybe others will like it .
If you read thru this whole Post , you will see that I am willing and able to accomodate other peoples ideas . I am willing to update the UI (less colorful) , and to make it a more traditional color scheme . Like I did with adding a "FOLDER" Button and adding a "Change Html Color Scheme" Button .

(4.) "It lacks a lot of features ."
Like what ? I am always happy to make it a better program .

Thanks

myFavs Editor has action buttons
We have a format her on the site for 100s of entries, many of which I've put a lot of time into. Can you draw something from one of those examples to draft a program description?

Here's more on my process of editing entries and here's a full list of suggestions for developers.
Hopefully , this will satisfy your requirements
It's less about requirements and more about understanding what you're building with myFavs. Maybe you could put together a video showing it solving a problem?
Please add myFavs to portable freeware collection
Joby took care of it and for future reference you're able to add programs yourself. However, I don't think it's going to get the votes to go live unless you can clearly explain what your program does. We're a fairly sympathetic audience and we certainly appreciate your efforts in portability and making it free, but I still don't have a clear idea what you program does or why I should download it.

I'd have just tested it and drafted something for you already as I've done with many other programs, but your home page (liesandcowpies.com) doesn't exactly fill me with confidence. Could you get it posted to softpedia or something?

myFavs is a powerful, portable, easy to use , openSource , 'Bookmark Manager' for all bookmark enthusiasts .
It inputs a text file of User Favorites and outputs a "myFavs.Html" page of sorted dropDown Menus/Links.

liesandcowpies.com : this is my gaming site , where I get to poke fun at polititians/celebrities, etc., by enabling players to lob cowpies at them . :) :)
But yes I can move it to another site . Let me work on that ...

Good idea .
I don't like softpedia
it is too difficult to find the correct download to click .
They are too sneaky for me .
see reviews: https://www.sitejabber.com/reviews/www.softpedia.com

Can someone recommend another site ?
Thanks

Hi vmars316

Personally I like your program and have upvoted it in the database. I think the program-agnostic text input aspect and ability to quickly create presentable HTMLs of link collections are enough to make the program worthy of inclusion.
