Hi all,

using Otter v1.0.81 weekly 272 (WebKit-Backend 602.1), I successfully  imported 5.000+ bookmarks/600+ folders  from Opera (with quite a long history...), well organized into folders.

Usability in Otter was far from good - folders + bookmarks wildly mixed, blindly sorted by whatever column I chose.

So I wrote a Q&D Perl script to rearrange the bookmarks file to have folders put first (recursively).
Drawback: Sorting bookmarks in bookmarks panel will return the mixup - you will have to run the script again.(In Don't-Sort-Anything-mode, if you want to preserve your sort order.)

One can specify the source + target file (.xbel expected) and opt for (not) sorting folders and/or bookmarks separately.
Just run the script in a command prompt window to see how to run it.

Anybody interested in such an intermediate solution can find the script at

You'll have Perl installed to run the script.
Perl for Windows(free community edition) can be found at

Comments/bug reports are welcome.

Happy 1 of May,
Hartmut

@Otter team:
I'm not familiar with XML/XSL/Otters handling of both (yet):
Does "the engine" support XML stylesheets/XSL Transformations?

If so, I would delve into this stuff and try to write something useful.

Otter Browser Forum / Styling the Otter-UI
Hi all,

as the look & feel of an UI is impotant to me, I did some styling of "my" Otter-browser.
Looks really outdated now ...

1 CSS file + a bunch of icons, mostly stolen from Opera 12.x ... "Skinning" /is/ available for Otter, obviously :-)
Skin is not perfect yet (see e.g. feed/bookmark properties dialog - OK-button w/o border), so it will take some further investigation to solve these problems - hints are welcome!

Screenshots are vailable at:

Stylesheet + icons can be found at:

A readme.txt containing installation instructions is provided.

Please feel free to report errors/make suggestions.

mfg, Hartmut
