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.

  • 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.

In this modern era, sometimes you aren’t able to get to your own personal PC where StorURL may be installed. If you’re the type of person who moves around from computer to computer, there is a StorURL solution for you! Check out our web-based version of StorURL , which is available for use for free, just like the desktop version. Have a few moments to spare? Please rate StorURL at the SnapFiles website!

    First, let me tell you i’m so glad to find this app.!
    I was searching for a good bookmak manager since a while. And finaly i find this one, and it’s free.
    Thank you!!
    Now if you don’t mind, i want to share some ideas for enhancements:

    1) Can you offer this options to open URL’s (note that i’m using a portabe version of firefox) :
    a) Firefox is not running -> StorURL launch the browser and open the URL in a tab
    b) Firefox is already running -> StorURL open the URL in a new tab
    An other idea would be to give the possibility to custom the browsers links like this : “C:\Portableapps\Firefox\firefox.exe” -new-tab

    2) Possibility to create a batch of URLs (or a category of links) that you can open in one click

    3) Customisation options for StorURL : change background colour, text colour and links colour for example (all this white kill my eyes :))

    4) possibility to protect the database with a password

    That’s all!
    Once again : thank you for this app.

    NB: Sorry for the mistakes, english is not my native language (French)

      Hello! Thanks for the positive comments. I’m glad you are happy with StorURL.

      I’ll try to address all of your suggestions in order:
      1. StorURL uses native OS calls to launch the browser, it doesn’t specifically know how to interact with any single browser, as it was designed to work equally with all browsers. In my specific test case, if Firefox is not open, and I click the link in StorURL, it automatically opens the browser. If Firefox is already open, it already opens a new tab. I am not sure if this is a configuration in Firefox that I have specifically defined, or if that is the default behavior, but it seems to already be doing what you are asking for. As for your additional idea, I will look into why specifying parameters for custom browsers does not work. It is supposed to allow you to do what you are suggesting already, and I have tested that exact use-case in the past so I know it used to work. There seems to be a bug introduced. I will try to squash it.

      2. You can just select multiple URLs in a category, right-click any one of them, and choose Open in Browser->Your Browser. It will automatically open each of the URLs in a separate tab in the browser, or separate windows if you have your browser configured that way.

      3. StorURL conforms to the system’s theme colors. If you set it to one of the accessible themes that use dark backgrounds, it will render itself with that theme instead of the bright white defaults. Nevertheless, I’ll consider implementing a way to customize the window.

      4. Password protection/encryption is on the roadmap for the next major release. I haven’t had much time to work on major changes lately, but once I get some free time, it’s definitely going to be implemented.

      Thanks for the suggestions, they are definitely helpful in making StorURL a useful tool for all who want it.

        I’m glad i could bring some ideas.

        I made some test:
        – With Internet Explorer : when i try to open multiple URLs like you said it opens each URL in a separate window.
        – With Firefox closed : if I select, for example, 2 URLs only one (the first) is open in firefox,
        – With Firefox already open : I have this message if I try to open 1 or 2 URLs : ” Another Mozilla Firefox is running. Close Mozilla Firefox before running Mozilla Firefox Portable”.

        I don’t know, perhaps the problem depends on my computer. I use Firefox but Internet Explorer is my default browser.
        Anyway, I’m waiting for the next major release.
        Thank you for taking time to considered my suggestions.

    Thank you for updating StorURL! If it’s as good as the previous version, I’m excited!
    (smile).. I’m little concerned, saw the earlier post above and I also use WIN7 PRO.

    Will the StorURL new version also stop on me as it did for this other person?
    I really would like to use it if it can run stable, please…

    I also enjoy two other utilities: the Multi-File Replace and the Work Scheduler.

    SUGGESTION: please make both the Multi-Replace and the Work Scheduler portable/USB?

    Thank You Joey

      All of my new(ish) applications are designed and built on Windows 7 x64. I also test them on Windows 7 Enterprise occasionally, usually if it’s one of my tools I wrote to use myself at work. I recently found that for StorURL 3, the Microsoft VC 2005 runtime files are necessary, due to me using a 3rd-party database connection library. From my testing, I’ve figured out that all you need is the .NET framework and that runtime (both linked from the page above in the requirements section) to get the application up and running on a brand new Windows 7 system with no updates or anything else. You can also play it safe and download the Full install including the runtimes, and that will guarantee StorURL will work on your Windows 7 system. 🙂

      Also, if you’re interested in receiving email updates when StorURL gets updated, fill out the little subscription box above. It will sign you up only to receive updates for this specific application, when I post them. I won’t use your address for any other purpose than to notify you when StorURL is updated.

    I’m unable to install storURL 3.0 on win7. It stops at the creating database stage.
    I checked event log and found 2 events logged with storURL: ID 33 and 1001.
    I read your introduction again and enabled .NET 3.5 framework (initially only .NET 4 is running). But still same issue.
    Please help.

      Hi Jo,

      I have sent you an email with some troubleshooting steps that I felt weren’t really helpful to post as a comment. Please try those steps and let me know how it goes.

      1. Jo C

        Hi Joey,

        Thanks for your prompt reply.
        I have gotten your mail, tried the steps, and had sent you the error message. Hope those are useful.


        1. Joey HazlettJoey Hazlett Post author

          We resolved this issue by having Jo install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Runtime files, which are necessary for the new database format. If you run into an issue while trying to load or create a database, please make sure you have these runtime files installed.
