Linkman is a terrifically versatile URL organizer and database that manages your Netscape Bookmarks and/or IE Favorites from the web. Linkman comes with a huge 2500+ link database of excellent, categorized links. Plus, you can actively interchange links between Netscape and Explorer, if you're using both browsers -- links are launched on startup in your default browser. Linkman gives you control-button access for loading, saving, sorting and converting links, and has an URL search capability. You can even assemble a collection of links into a web page, and have Linkman capture URLs from the Windows clipboard, on a schedule you designate. The clipboard Auto-Tracking can be turned on/off at will, via the system tray icon. Many other options are available from the Configuration tab of the program window. If you have a large number of URLs, especially if your sanity depends on for keeping them easily organized, this program will win you over fast. It comes with a good Help file -- I think it's a good idea to read it over first, so you'll understand the ergonomics and practical implications of the feature set, since this program has a lot of management power. Linkman is a winner, and free as well! The author invites suggestions and comments by email: Thomas Reimann at
