StorURL

StorURL is an offline bookmark manager for Windows desktops. 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 available to you 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.
  • Save credentials for any site in an encrypted format.
  • Open and manage unlimited numbers of databases. Have one for work bookmarks and a separate one for home.
  • 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.

      Hi Olaf,

      This seems to be a problem with a recent change to my web host due to the fact that older versions of TLS are cryptographically broken. StorURL was built on the .NET 3.5 framework to reach the broadest audience possible, but now it’s showing its age with regards to the newer versions of TLS; unfortunately it’s front and center with my own website. I’m working on an update to StorURL that will require the latest version of the .NET framework so that I can support TLS 1.2 and eventually TLS 1.3 as well, but it will take a bit to rebuild everything on the new framework and release the update.

    Hi. I just started recently using this software, and one time I rebooted my computer, tried to run the software again and it would not start. I looked for the database file and still cannot find it. Any clue what may be causing this? I would like to not lose my bookmarks if at all possible. Thank you.

      Hi Chris,

      I just uploaded version 3.0.25.3, which I hope will resolve the crash issue. There seems to be a problem with my web host only supporting TLS 1.3 as of very recently. The fix that I implemented in 3.0.25.2 seems to be causing issues if you do not have the correct version of .NET installed. So far I have not been able to track down what that “correct” version is, so I have removed the fix that I implemented. Checking for updates through the application will probably not work, but the rest of the application should. Please download the installer or portable version again and try reinstalling it, making sure you have version 3.0.25.3. If you are still having problems launching the application, please report back and I’ll see if I can troubleshoot further. Don’t fret, your bookmarks collection is most likely still intact and accessible! In the worst case scenario, there are SQLite tools, including the database editor included with StorURL, which will allow you to grab all of your data out of the StorURL database.

        Awesome!! Thank you so much, I figured out what my issue was after all. I found how the database file wasn’t being found or some bug issue I believe., but was separate from the application itself, so that greatly relived me lol Most likely the Windows update or some issue causing this since it was working fantastically prior.

        Thank you so much for your quick response, I had been using the portable version which was working except for it continued to show an exception error (however, still functioned properly, simply with an exception pop-up which I was able to close and continue using the software). I will now do just that and install the new version. I really appreciate your hard work and replying to my comment, haztek makes incredible software. I seem to return again and again to what you guys are able to come up with!

          Updated once more, and now everything is working perfectly once again. Seems even smoother than before. You rock.

    Thanks for your reply. I just deleted the settings.xml file and it works fine.Another question: how can I extent the taskbar so that I can see the icon for adding a new entry.
    I saw it once but it has now disappeared and I can’t find a setting option.

      In Tools->Options General tab there is a “Show application toolbar” checkbox. Once that is checked and saved, the toolbar will show up that includes the button to add new entries.

    I just started to use your portable version of StorUrl and clicked on floating toolbar.
    Now I can not find this and when I restart it comes up but disappears immediately again.
    So, I can not at all access. What should I do????

      Hi Marion, sorry you are having an issue with the floating toolbar. One thing you can check is to see if the location of the floating toolbar has been set to coordinates outside of your viewing area on your desktop. In the settings file (settings.xml) you will probably see an entry for FloatingToolbarLocation with an X and Y coordinate. The easiest thing to try is to: 1. Close StorURL. 2. Open the settings file with an editor (like notepad) and change the X and Y coordinate to 0. 3. Re-launch StorURL and open the floating toolbar. At that point, it should show up in the top left corner of your primary screen. If it does not, please send me an email [support@haztek-software.com] and we can troubleshoot it further.

    This is a good software which is a help to a bookmark of an important website that helps easy access. I have found a good website [url redacted] that I bookmark on my windows desktop and check for any windows error.

      Hello,

      I am unable to reproduce this problem on my end using the latest version of StorURL (3.0.25.0). If you email a screenshot to support@haztek-software.com, I may be able to find the problem and fix it. Otherwise, I can’t fix something I can’t reproduce.

    Just what I was looking for! I recently started using Firefox after using Chrome for years. I have hundreds of (very disorganised) bookmarks in Chrome, and I have a few in Firefox too. I don’t want to cross import and make things even more disorganised, so I was looking for an out-of-browser bookmarks manager and found this!

    WOW – you’ve just made my day 🙂
    In StorURL I’ve finally found a product able to solve my bookmark chaos between different browsers (which has been having serious impact on my productivity lately).
    Also, being able to assign searchable tags is a dream come true.
    The only thing missing to make it 100% effective would be the ability to establish a preferred browser for each bookmark (as I’ve seen other people have already commented).

      Thank you for your comments Bleika! I’m glad my app was able to help you organize your chaos. 🙂 Having a preferred browser per bookmark is in my “TODO” list; having multiple people ask for it definitely increases its priority, so I will look into it when I have some free time to work on the app.
