I`m on the look out for a bookmark manager and thought I`d give Links Organizer a try.
I quite like it, but it`s missing three key features for me:
1) The ability to password protect all the links. This might require a bit of a re-design because I would prefer to be able to create multiple "Bookmarks" projects, which can be password protected.
2) The ability to select multiple links and then open multiple links (specifically URL`s) in one go (eg. by right-clicking and selecting "Browse URL`s").
3) The ability to specify the path of other browsers (eg. Firefox, Avant Browser etc.) and let them be used to browse links in, instead of limiting the user to the internal browser, IE and Netscape.

I will also work on your suggestions. Regarding password protection - you will be able to see these links only in Links Organizer - browsers will be unable to access these links. Is it fine?

Yes this is how it should work. If you need access to the password protected links, you have to open LO and enter the password before the bookmarks project is decrypted.
I would recommend using the 256-bit AES Rijndael algroithm for encryption. You could also maybe give the user the choice of which algorithm to use. Another good algorithm is the Twofish algorithm.
Both these algorithms have stood up to review by expert cryptographers who say they are very secure.

It`s just the way I like to organize things hence my preference for being able to load up LO and then load different bookmark files. It should still be possible to create a folder structure in each bookmark file (ie. still have the Folder Tree). There should also be an option for auto-loading the last used bookmarks file and selecting the last used folder when LO is started. Obviously it should be possible to password protect/encrypt the database too.
I suppose this may not be the way you want to go for LO, but as a bookmark (URL`s in particular) manager this is the way I`d like to see it working.
LO will be able to password-protect a certain bookmark (MS IE link, etc.) If you want to browse it, the bookmark will point to the running LO (with an internal Web server). The server in LO will ask you to enter the password and then you will go directly to the link. But you will have to keep LO running. Maybe a standalone tiny server application is possible to implement.
Another way is to have another section in LO - protected bookmarks. You will be able to move or add the bookmarks you want. If you select the Protected Bookmarks in LO`s tree, you will be asked for a password and only then you will be able to browse them.
Which way you prefer?

I prefer this method. Would it also be possible to have an additional Import/Export option "Encrypted" so bookmarks can be exported in encrypted form. I know you could export in one of the text based formats and then encrypt it, but it would be nice if it could be done from within LO in one step.
