Synopsis
StorURL is a bookmark manager. It helps you to store links to all of your favorite websites in one central repository. It works with the browsers installed on your system so you can open your links in any web browser you’d like from one central interface.
Features
  • Import your bookmarks from most major browsers, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer and Opera.
  • Open websites in any browser installed on your computer, directly from within StorURL.
  • Store and sort sites in unlimited categories.
  • Enable a floating toolbar that you can keep anywhere on your screen, for quick access to all your bookmarks.
  • Generate HTML “home” pages containing links from one or all categories.
  • Portable mode! Now, run it from a USB thumb drive! Check out the ZIP download further down the page.

Nice alternative to URL GATHER, much appreciated, Not much time to test but I'd love to hear about advantages/disadvantages comparing both.

@xor
I like both StorURL and URL Gather. It is a matter of personal preferences but to me StorURL is more flexible- it has its own unique "Floating Toolbar" which gives the user the option to open bookmarks from it (it resides on the top left corner of the desktop). In StorURL bookmarks can also be launched from tray menu which means that there are 3 different ways to open a bookmark- from floating tool-bar, from tray and from program's main window. In URL Gather the user may add different browsers but can use only the one which is set to default while in StorURL any added browser can be used to launch a bookmark from a sub-menu. StorURL also offers bookmarks verification which makes it an alternative to the now discontinued AM-DeadLink. URL Gather has a tool-bar while StorURL doesn't- once it had but the developer removed it. Yet he let me know that the tool-bar might be restored in the future. URL Gather can be password-protected. On my system StorURL uses a bit more memory- StorURL- 56 MB, URL Gather- 41 MB. StorURL requires .NET and someone may consider this as disadvantage. StorURL also offers HTML generation and database backup while URL Gather has duplicates search.

... helps you to store links to all of your favorite websites in one central repository
This is great. I never had much use for bookmark managers until a recent situation on a site that requires IE but works SO much better with Firefox (especially the amazing DownThemAll add-on). Certainly tools like Open in IE help but it would be a lot easier to have something handling links functioning separate from the browsers.

Will test this out soon.

The increased import speed and finally including bookmark descriptions from Firefox imports has made this 110% usable for me. But most of my bookmarks with blank descriptions is filled with "Imported from Firefox" text. I don't think cluttering every single bookmark with this phrase is necessary. Oddly some bookmark descriptions are kept blank just as I want them to be. Might be a bug.
