Portable Bookmarks 2.0

Hi all. I've decided to publish Portable Bookmarks 2.0 because I think someone might find the idea interesting.

Portable Bookmarks 2.0 is a browser-independent, clipboard-based, easy to use, portable bookmark manager.

Instead of folders, everything is done using tags and quick search. Hyperlinks from your clipboard will be added to bookmarks automatically. You can tag or delete them later.

You can also add files and folders as bookmarks.

Custom Internet search (f1-f4 keys)

A fully scalable UI and customizable colors.

License: Freeware

100% portable. Supported operating systems: Windows 10, 8, 7, Linux.
