Unfortunately you have to turn it on and then it will let you change it. I'll have a look tomorrow to see if there is a preference file that can easily be changed to skip having to sync with IE.

You could give Xmarks a try. Works fine for me. You install it as a plugin for Chrome, and as a pref pane for your Mac. Your Mac will be synchronized to your iPhone. I didn't try the mobile app yet.

Use Xmarks worked OK for me except for Firefox where it duplicated the book marks each time I used it. Althougn now in Mavericks or because of a later version of Firefox it works

The chrome extension "Xmarks" may serve your needs. The extension syncs bookmarks between computers. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ajpgkpeckebdhofmmjfgcjjiiejpodla seems to be available for both chrome and safari. Then if you use icloud sync, bookmarks "should" propagate to your mobile device. Changes on the idevice would propagate back to ...

According to this detailed Apple Support Forum post the trick is to use Lion 10.7.2 and Safari 5.1.1 to force a flush of the Data. Simplified steps: Turn off bookmark sync on all devices except the Mac Backup current bookmarks on Mac Correct bookmarks on Safari on the Mac Move the new bookmarks out of you Safari Library folder Delete all bookmarks and ...

If you want them synced (but not built-in Mobile Safari), you may use XMarks.

There are three problems with the script you posted, and one of them may be just a problem that was caused when you pasted the code into your question. Starting from the beginning: You need to tell Chrome where to do the JavaScript, like this: tell application "Google Chrome" tell active tab of window 1 to execute javascript "your script" end tell ...

Since I don't have the reputation to comment, I have to put this in an answer. I can second the XMarks service as a great way to sync bookmarks between browsers, especially Internet Explorer (IE) and Safari, and especially if you want to sync your iPhone bookmarks with Firefox. There are problems with duplicates from time to time, but that is mitigated ...

The above method is nice; however, it won't help if you have 1000s of duplicates like I do. I wrote an Automator script that simulated the deletion of each book and then ran it.

Not a real solution, but a little faster then pure down. You can jump over the different sections with command-down.

I really like Instapaper. Not only does it allow storage and hierarchical organization of seemingly unlimited bookmarks/pages, it has a nice, big cache and reading offline works like a charm. It will save articles that are broken into multiple pages automatically which I particularly like. It also sports an iBooks-like UI which allows typographic control, ...

AFAIK it's no longer possible. Tried looking at the contents of window.getSelection() by remote debugging my iPhone through Safari. Text is indeed deselected. But even visually, I'm able to see that text is deselected when you tap a link or open the bookmarks menu. In regards to describing this as "broken", I suppose it's a matter of how you look at it. It ...

Unfortunately, there is no way for developers to integrate your bookmarks into our apps. We create a browser using WebKit, but the bookmarks are stored in Safari, not WebKit. Instapaper is likely your best choice, and is available in most RSS apps and many Twitter apps do (including Echofon). You then can view these saved pages from the Instapaper app ...

Since it's a folder, hold down the Command and Option keys, then drag the folder off the Bookmarks Bar. You'll get a confirmation dialog saying "Are you sure?" Just click the Delete Folder button in the dialog. Holding the Command and Control keys keys down gets you a contextual menu that allows you to edit the name of the folder, edit its contents (jumps ...

There's an option in the 'Info'-Tab. At the bottom, you'll find an 'Advanced'-section: 'Replace information on this iPad'. Check 'Bookmarks' there. Instead of merged, the data on the iOS device will be replaced. In MobileMe this was synchronized across all devices, so I hope with iCloud this will be also.

Take a look at Xmarks. It stores the bookmarks on an Xmarks-server, so they are available from everywhere. It's compatible with Safari, IE, Firefox and Chrome.

You should definitely look at Papers. The new version (Papers 2) was released a few weeks ago, and while not completely rock stable, I really can't live without it ! It has pretty much all the features you asked. You can manage books (and ebooks), each entry in the "database" is linked to one or more files (.pdf most of the time). In addition in Papers 2 ...

yes there is, if you have a mac. Get iExplorer here http://www.macroplant.com/iexplorer/ plug in your iOS device and use iExplorer to look in the books file and drag the following files to your desktop. iBooks.plist and iBooksData2.plist and this app https://github.com/lgoss007/BookmarkExtractor put the files in the appropriate spot and you can get your ...

Bookmarks bar: Bookmarks in the bookmarks bar can be sorted using drag-and-drop. Bookmarks menu: When you toggle Show All Bookmarks ⌘+⌥+B and click on collections → bookmarks menu, you may manually sort bookmarks which are located in the bookmarks menu. You can sort bookmarks alphabetically using SafariSort (free). This ...

Google Chrome ....is now available for iOS. Just activate (bookmarks) synchronisation on your PC and iPad. Go to New Tab > Favorites > Computer Favorites. From the App Store description: Sign in to Chrome to sync your open tabs, bookmarks, passwords, and omnibox data from your computer to your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. Pick up right where ...

Not only the chrome extension for xmarks, but you can use this on all browsers, ie, firefox, safari, chrome, etc. www.xmarks.com. I have used it for several years and I heard it changed from free to paid about a year ago, so not sure what all it takes now, but I am happy with the setup I have and use the web access to find my bookmarks remotely often.

If you select 'Show All Bookmarks', the Bookmark Library will open. You can then right-click there and change. You are quite right in that you cannot right click a menu item in OS X and have it perform a secondary function (not in any of the major browsers anyway). So the quick way to achieve what you want is - Shift-Command B to bring up the Bookmark ...

Just download the free (!) Google Chrome app on your iPhone and then you can simply share and sync all your desktop bookmarks to your iPhone/iPad.

I'm quite pleased with Pinboard. There are a number of browser extensions and apps that work with the API.

There is no way to synchronize Maps with Maps (so to speak), but you can sync Earth with Maps, with Google Earth being on the iPhone. If you log in to Google Earth, it will synchronize your maps. Those can be added from Google Maps on the web. Unfortunately, there's still no way to add stuff from an iPhone, but there isn't no connectivity between them. ...

Use the Apollo browser for iPad.

I have a similar workflow that I've used in Safari and I've used the Edit Name Feature to make it easier to move from one site to another. If I bring up a chart of SSO in Stockcharts.com and create a Bookmark, the Bookmarks Toolbar Menu shows it as SSO - Stockcharts Workbench - Stockcharts.Com. Then I "Show All Bookmarks", right-click (control click) edit ...

The combination of Scrivener and BibDesk made me switch from Linux to the Mac some years ago. -- Your ebooks can be managed through it, even auto-filed with a name generated from the info you enter -- I get book information from the research libraries I use, using their Z39.50 interface (only a handful of libraries do not use that), but other sources like ...
