New Feature: Set Tab/Category and Tags when adding a bookmark in mobile browsers

Until now you could add a bookmark to Ninja in the mobile browsers only with sending the link via email to the email address.

From now you can bookmark a page the same way as in the desktop browsers: you can invoke the "Add Bookmark" dialog where you can set the destination Tab/Category and can also add Tags.

While the installation of the "Add to Ninja" bookmarklet in the desktop browsers is a simple drag and drop, in the mobile browsers it requires 3 easy steps.

Please launch the site in your mobile browser and select "Install Bookmarklet" from the Ninja main menu and follow the 3 steps listed on the page.

You can find a more detailed guide here: How to install the bookmarklet in the mobile browsers?

To invoke the "Add Bookmark" window to send the actual link in the mobile browser to Ninja, tap on the "Add to Ninja" bookmarklet: How to add a bookmark to Ninja on mobile devices?

Of course sending the link via email to the email address is also still available.

Importing Pocket Bookmarks

From now you can import your Pocket bookmarks directly into Bookmark Ninja. Pocket doesn't use the standard "Netscape bookmark file format" for export, so until now users were not able to transfer their bookmarks easily from Pocket to Ninja. Since more and more users contacted me with this request I have developed the support for the Pocket file format.

Browser Extension Buttons for Ninja

If you want to use Ninja you have to install bookmarklets on your browser's bookmark bar to have the "Add to Ninja" and "Ninja Dashboard" buttons accessible.

From now another option is also available: you can install browser extension buttons in Chrome, Firefox and Opera. Extensions for the other browsers will be available in the future. Using extensions instead of bookmarklets makes possible to hide the browser's bookmark bar which saves space on the screen.

The reason why these 3 browsers were selected is that Chrome and Firefox have a 89% market share (you can check the latest browser statistics and trend here). Opera was selected because the Chrome extensions can be easily installed in Opera with one extra step.

Of course the bookmarklet installation option will be still available in any browser.

You can install the extensions from the Install Browser Buttons page.

New Feature: Find and Delete Duplicates

If you already have collected a large number of bookmarks, the chance is high that you have duplicated bookmarks. This new feature makes possible to find and delete the duplicates.

The feature is accessible on the My Bookmarks page (only in desktop browser, not available in mobile browser).
Make sure  "All" is selected and no tag is selected from the Available tags list. This is the default state when you click on the "My Bookmarks" menu and the page loads. The "Find Duplicates" menu will be accessible only when the these conditions are met.

Click on the "Find Duplicates" menu to bring up the "Find Duplicates" dialog.
A bookmark is considered to be duplicated if it has the same URL as another bookmark.
Enter a tag (default tag: "duplicate") that you want to add to one of each duplicate pairs.
For example if 5 bookmarks have the same URL then the tag will be added to 4 of them.
To start the search click on the "Find Duplicates" button.

When the search is complete, click on OK to close the message box then click on the "Duplicate" tag in the Available tags list to see the duplicated bookmarks.

Now select all the bookmarks (click on "Select All") and delete them (click on "Delete").
Before deleting the bookmarks always make sure that the "Duplicate" tag has been selected.
