A Control-Click on a hypertext link in Safari, Explorer, DEVONagent or iCab


The Add Bookmark CMI (Contextual Menu Item) plug-in adds a special command to the Contextual Menu when you Control-Click on hypertext links on a web page and when you Control-Click on a selection of text (any app).

Web Browsers that support Contextual Menus: Safari, Explorer, DEVONagent and iCab.


With the Add Bookmark CMI plug-in you can Control-Click on a hypertext link in a browser window and then choose "Add Link to URL Manager Pro" from the Contextual Menu.

You can also Control-Click on a bookmark or a selection of bookmarks in the Favorites Window of Explorer and choose "Add Links to URL Manager Pro".


The plug-in also works with Apple Mail and Eudora, for example. Just Control-Click on a URL and you can bookmark the URL with the command "Add URL to URL Manager Pro".

Note: BBEdit also supports the plug-in.
