HTMtied - Create bookmarks as browser-independent files on your desktop

Wondered you could manage your bookmarks independent of any browser, rather than associated with specific browsers, and that you could organize these within a browser independent folder structure.

HTMtied is a portable application which converts any URL from the clipboard to an HTML file which acts as the URL’s shortcut. It is quite similar to bookmarking any website, however, in this case they are saved as a shortcut on required local location instead of browser’s bookmarks archive. It instantly converts any Internet address (link, URL) 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. No installation required, just download (26KB) and ‘open’ or ‘run’. Runs on Windows 7/Vista/XP (32 & 64 bit).

How to use HTMtied
Step 1: Copy the Internet address from your browser’s address bar or from any link to the Clipboard.
Step 2: Run HTMtied (from the Desktop, Start Menu, or better yet, from a shortcut key you define). HTMtied 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.

HTMtied is so easy to use that it doesn’t even need a user interface: if the Internet address is valid and the linking HTML file was successfully copied to the Clipboard, the famous “Tada” sound is played. On failure, a standard Windows error sound is played.

Note: 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 HTMtied work anywhere. And yes, HTMtied can convert a URL file to a standard linking HTML file: simply copy the URL file on the Clipboard and run HTMtied. Or drag and drop the URL file over the HTMtied icon.
