Bookmarks by Keywords
The keywords in bookkey completely replace the usual hierarchical folder structure that can not only be found in explorer-like applications, but also in every menu structure that uses submenus, like the bookmark menus in browsers.

In bookkey there is no hierarchy, just a plain list of keywords, like
Cameras
Computers
Magazines
Shops
Weather
This list of keywords of course is controlled by you, the user. You may add, delete and rename keywords.
On import the folder names of the hierarchical structure are used as keywords in bookkey, so you can start with your existing collection of bookmarks.

You are free to assign any combination of these keywords to any bookmark. You may add or de-assign keywords to/from bookmarks at any time.
In the example from Home, shops that sell computers get the keywords Computers and Shops, other shops may get the keywords Cameras and Shops, the stores that sells both get all three keywords.

When accessing the bookmarks, you choose one of the keywords from the list, for example Computers, and get a list of your bookmarks with Computer assigned to, separated into sections by the additional keywords.
Selected keyword(s)   Bookmarks                                
Computers
+ Magazines
Computing Tomorrow
+ Shops
Buy Bits And Bytes
Computer Wonderland
+ Shops + Cameras
All The Needful Things
Planet of Electronics
There is no need to follow a hierarchic sequence. You could as well have started with Shops, getting a similar list of your bookmarks for shops.

If the list of bookmarks is too long after selecting one keyword you may narrow it by selecting another one.
Selected keyword(s)   Bookmarks                                
Computers
Shops
Buy Bits And Bytes
Computer Wonderland
+ Cameras
All The Needful Things
Planet of Electronics
In this example the list of your bookmarks for Computers is narrowed with the keyword Shops. bookkey still lists shops that sell Computers and something else.
 
If at least one keyword is selected, the list of available keywords is filtered to leave only those, that can further narrow the list of bookmarks.
In this example the keyword Weather would be hidden after selecting Computers, because there is no bookmark with keywords Computers and Weather.

bookkey also comes with those "normal" features needed in a bookmark manager, plus some innovative ones. See Features for the complete list.
