Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Seems not working with latest version of FF. I added bookmarks but they're not showing in the addon's bookmark manager. Also creating a folder is not possible.

Its really cool!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's really cool.
It provides a preview of the page, suports the sorting of them and stores a backup of the page.
Dupes (double storages) are prevented.
To do this it provides quite intelligent algorithms.

The tool is well documented by the thesis of the author.
I suppose some of the assessments are bad because it is not trivial to understand what it is good for.
So I also had some problems to understand what happens during the initialisation. Here already existing bookmarks are supposed to be scanned ...

I use it in addition to standard FF bookmarks, not as a replacement.
No problem to use it together with TabMix Plus and Sitzungs-Manger.

HyperBK has some problems to use German Umlaute like äöü - better not to use them.
Unfortunately this AddOn seem not to be open source.
I love it and I believe its ideas are worth to be developed further.

So long Walni

Usefull extension. Thank you for your work.

And I need :
- HyperBK store (optionaly) his bookmarks in the Firefox Database so that it could be synchronised by FF v4 or by other extensions.
- that the bookmark's search results display the parent folder.
- to be able to modify the URL and put tags when adding a bookmark.

hmm yes Rated 5 out of 5 stars

looking forward to something like this with 'voyage' and 'history tree' ... the library (now 'organize bookmarks') is not evolving fast enough

I crave nested tags

Unfortunately HyperBK has its own Bookmark Database, so the AddOn "FoxMarks" (I use to sync my bookmarks and passwords) is not working.
Would love to see the features offered here with the normal FF Bookmarks.

Not for Firefox 3 Rated 2 out of 5 stars

While the concept is great and I was looking forward to having a bookmarks link checker again, HyperBK doesn't work properly in Firefox 3.

Very simply, it is designed for working with bookmarks but does not import them properly. They are no longer stored in "Bookmarks.html" files as in FF2 and prior. To get it up, you'd have to export the existing bookmarks, then import it here. Oh, but first you'd have to turn FF bookmarks back on so you can do that. Blah blah...

Then, if you ever wanted to use FF bookmarks again, you'd have to export HyperBK's and import them into FF. 2 sets of bookmarks?
I'm pulling it.

Weird behavior here too Rated 2 out of 5 stars

All-in-all I like the idea and functionality of this add-on. I too was having difficulty with the JavaScript showing up in online posts, only with Joomla and PHPProBid. It was causing server errors whenever I went to save my articles. The only way I found out what was happening was by going into html view where I could see the script (it didn't show up in the editor window).

I contacted the author of multipopup who very apologetically explained to me that HyperBK had incorporated his script without his permission and that there was nothing he could do about it.

I would certainly consider using this add-on again, if the problems were fixed.

fix

The issue you are speaking about happens due to a feature of HyperBK which adds tooltips to already bookmarked links. Unfortunately some sites do have problems with additional javascript code inserted into them. This can be fixed by disabling this feature from HyperBK preferences by unticking both checkboxes in Webpage Links tooltips.

Weird behaviour in Wordpress.com Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I experience a weird thing with HyperBK when editing posts in Wordpress.com. Everytime I saved a post, a Javascript code showed up in the post. I could remove the code, but it showed up again after saved. The bug disappeared after disabling the tool tips options in the HyperBK preferences. The full story of my experience can be read at http://hasant.wordpress.com/2008/06/07/what-was-wrong-with-my-postings/

This is entirely supernumerary in 3.0 and later. It is a clumsy way to make a hierarchy, and it also seems to need some debugging. It stayed installed on my system for about six minutes.

Nice but needs work Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Nice bookmark manager but I have 1 killer issue & 1 annoyance. I could not find an option to open a bookmark in a new tab. That is a killer for me. Also, when trying to move a bookmark from the bottom of the list to the top, it deselects the book every time I tell it to move up. This makes moving a bookmark an arduous process.

Not ready yet Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I struggled to like HyperBK, and the ideas are great. But...
Too many problems:
slippery drop-down menus that escape my clicks
faulty directory structure which requires unique directory names
inability to "manage" in the sidebar
too many clicks and entry to email a link
Above all, what I want is a smooth way to save bookmarks and to manage many, many folders and bookmarks; and it's not there.

Thanks for the effort.

HyperBK Bookmarks Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great bookmark manager. Simple and really QUICK!! I highly recommend it for all. I just wish they would make it simple to back up or import and export the database.

More Options Needed. Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It would be more useful if users are allowed to add/remove search engines. \r\nA simple GUI will do the job.

Just one word: Useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The aim behind HyperBK is to be able to provide better bookmark functionality from within the browser itself.

And it acomplishes this aim: It's simply more usable than normal bookmarks and it's also easier as most feature-loaded bookmarking extensions.

It's visual, it's flexible and it is smart enough to do part of the work for you.
