No import? No method for sharing a menu's contents between machines? This tool really doesn't seem worthy of any particularly special recognition. The ability to mix files, folders, and URL on a single menu seems more likely to be confusing than helpful.

I recognize that this is merely my opinion, this tool might be exactly the right thing for some users. I may, in fact, use it myself to create a "Visitor's Menu" on my machine for visiting friends to have easy access to common apps and sites. (i.e. Yahoo mail, Explorer, Music directories)

For me, LaunchBar is the fastest, most efficient way to get to almost anything. For an extensive, regularly visited bookmark collection I use BookIt. Alas, it does not offer true synchronization, which would be nice, but since bookmark collections can be stored in its own file format, transporting between machines, while still manual, is at least reasonably efficient. I have found both of these programs to be well worth their price.

Kudos are in order, however, for what seems to be a stable piece of FREEware.

I like it, so I picked it ;-).

I agree with one of the earlier posters - I would pay for a seamless (no import/export or upload/download that I have to be involved in) bookmark manager that resided in the menu bar and utilized .mac or an FTP site of my choice to synchronize with. But it would have to be seamless -- I don't want to be bothered to remember to upload or download or import or export. Just let me manage my bookmarks, then the program goes off in the background and do what needs to be done to keep everything in synch.

Picks of the Week aren't necessarily perfect pieces of software; they're just things that I found useful and/or interesting during the last week of my time with OS X :-).
