Powerful bookmark manager for personal computers

Compass is a virtual bookmark manager that was originally developed as far back as 1998. Since this time, it has been providing users with the ability to better control and monitor their bookmarks. However, one of its main features is that it offers a much greater sense of flexibility when compared to other programs on the market.

Core Applications and Usability

Compass groups bookmarks within what are known as hierarchical folders. The main advantage of this method is that their order can be determined by the user. So, he or she will be able to find a bookmark much quicker. These formats can be shared across multiple devices, so it is a rather all-in-one solution. A friendly user interface is suited for those who do not have much experience with organizational software and a file size of only 900 kilobytes is associated with a very small memory footprint.

Additional Benefits

Not only is Compass a bookmark manager, but it doubles as a basic text editor. Users can create journals, memos and other personal reminders in no time at all. Its developers claim that this application has the ability to handle and collate more than one thousand bookmarks; a massive benefit when collating large amounts of data.

Bug fixes

Compass has long been one of the most popular and powerful bookmark managers in the world. Due to it's richness and usefulness of the features, it virtually set the standards for this category of applications.

Compass supports three popular browsers - Netscape, Internet Explorer, Opera, and also any generic browsers specified by the OS. What makes Compass unique is the power of handling the hierarchical structure of folders. With Compass, you'll be amazed how easy you can find and organize your bookmarks the way you want, and how easy you can integrate all bookmarks from different computers or different browsers. Not only is Compass a bookmark manager, but it is also an "outline editor" or a "note editor." You can use Compass to create your personal journal, notes or memos. When you use Compass as an outline editor, you will find Compass is even better than the programs that were created for that purpose. Compass can easily handle more than thousands of bookmarks.
