Introduction

Portmarks instantly converts any Internet address (link, URL, bookmark, favorite) to a very small HTML file that when opened in any browser, it will automatically load that address. Use it when you want to save an Internet address for future use on your computer, tablet, smartphone, web storage, Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, etc.

Using Portmarks is easy as 1, 2, 3. Step 1: Copy the Internet address from your browser's address bar or from any link to the Clipboard. Step 2: Run Portmarks (from the Desktop, Start Menu, or better yet, from a shortcut key you define). Portmarks will automatically convert that address to a linking HTML file and copy the file to the Clipboard. Step 3: Simply paste the file anywhere you want.

Starting with Version 2.0, Portmarks supports conversion of links en masse: copy any number of Internet addresses on separate lines to the Clipboard or drag and drop any number of URL files over Portmarks, and linking HTML files will be created for each address. There is also the new Direct Mode, a special Portmarks shortcut that, when clicked, it will automatically save all the link HTML files to a directory of your choosing (Documents, Dropbox, etc.).

Windows and Internet Explorer can save Internet addresses to URL files. However, URL files are not a standard and cannot be used across different platforms. Linking HTML files created by Portmarks work anywhere. And yes, Portmarks can convert URL files to linking HTML files: simply copy the URL files on the Clipboard and run Portmarks. Or drag and drop the URL files over the Portmarks icon.

Portmarks is so easy to use that it doesn't even need a user interface: if everything goes well, the famous "Tada" sound is played. On failure, an error sound is played. Portmarks can also be downloaded and run directly, without installation.
