Bookmark Manager - FANTASTIC! (for those of us who need POWER SEARCH features, & worried about Chrome's direction)

bkm - Bookmark-Manager

Developer updates http://bkm.sourceforge.net/

Windows downloads https://sourceforge.net/projects/bkm/files/bkm/

Powerful, open source, stand alone bookmark manager. Development stopped in 2007, but I'm currently using it in my Windows 7 machine and it works fine.

Features include:

-- imports my over 13,000 bookmarks from Chrome (Mozilla/Firefox format) without a problem

-- allows me to search for folder names in addition to actual bookmarks. Also lets me search for ONLY folder names. I've tried all the other portable bookmark managers (StorURL was the best of that lot) and no others allowed me to search for folder names

-- allows me to search for bookmarks within ONLY a certain folder (including sub-folders)

-- I'm a dedicated Chrome browser user, and with the recent changes in the look & feel of the built-in Chrome Bookmark Manager, I'm a little worried about the future. With the limited search features on Chrome's Bookmark Manager, I also have trouble finding bookmarks in my stash of over 13,000 bookmarks. So I started looking for something portable and stand-alone.

This (bkm - Bookmark-Manager) works like a charm, but is not portable. If someone could make it portable, THAT WOULD BE AWESOME!
