I use all three and a couple of others from time to time. Each has their advantages, and sometimes some disadvantages. For example, each Mac browser handles website bookmarks differently. Here’s how to get bookmarks in sync between Safari, Chrome, and Firefox, and in sync between multiple Macs.
Ready. Set. Mark. Synk.
Bookmarks must be a problem with a growing number of Mac users. How else do you explain all the bookmark management utilities on the market. If you use Safari, Chrome, and Firefox on your Mac, and have multiple Macs, you might like using Synkmark to sync up website bookmarks.
The advantages of bookmark synchronization are simple. The same bookmarks are available on all your Macs, and on all three major browsers. Setup and configuration of Synkmark is straightforward though there are plenty of options, including bookmark sorting.
Change the number of minutes to wait before importing bookmark changes from browsers, select which browsers to import and export, and in what order.
Synkmark works with Apple’s iCloud, Google, and Firefox Sync. Even the licensing is liberal and applies to all the Macs you own.
Browser website bookmarks are mostly a pain to manage, especially if the number goes beyond a few dozen. Syncmark’s developer specializes in utilities to manager bookmarks on Mac browsers so there’s a degree of experience involved. Even with the ability to keep bookmarks nicely synced between browsers and Macs, I still hate managing bookmarks. Maybe it’s the tedium, maybe it’s the OCD medicine kicking in.
There are sufficient number of browser bookmark sync apps available that I should be obliged to point you in a similar, but slightly different direction. BookMacster. Same developer. Different method (and one I find a bit easier to use).
Another Mac bookmark app you may prefer is more visual. It’s called Pins, an elegant bookmark repository which displays a thumbnail of each website.
Pins thumbnails of each website make it easy to view the site, and the app itself is easily accessible from the Mac’s Menubar. There’s much to like here, but Pins is for Mac users who really struggle with hundreds and hundreds of bookmarks and need them to be synchronized between Macs (iCloud and Dropbox). Bookmarks can even be shared with a couple of clicks. There’s also a Pins extension for Safari, Firefox, and Chrome so bookmarks can show up on the most used browsers on all your Macs.
It’s more money but the sync works and bookmark management is more intuitive.
Bookmarks might be one of those browser specific necessary evils. They’re useful, yes, but managing bookmarks and keeping them in sync requires a third party app or extra effort if you use more than Safari.
