Since I don't use bookmarks anymore, I've gotta put this stuff somewhere.

That's it for now.

OK, I'll ask. How come you don't use bookmarks anymore? Do you use something else?

Simple. There's no easy way to share bookmarks among on the computers I happen to use now and then.

I've started to use rsync for all my bookmarks, using the webserver as the authoritative server.

I think I have a very good solution, but you may not like it -- using Blogger, right, Google's Blogger. This is my bookmark page:

IE has Google's Tool Bar, which has a "Blog This" function. Firebird has "Blog this" extension. Both take you a couple of clicks to bookmark a page. No typing needed.

You can even create multiple blogs for categories, and organize the bookmarks that way.

You can alway password protect it and let no one know. :-)

I tend to put my bookmarks on my blog too! Although my excuse is that it is becoming difficult to synchronise bookmarks between my many browsers. I will be checking out Victor's suggestion though.

I started using .Mac between my PowerBook and my G5. Works beautifully!

I actually wrote a bookmark search engine in Python that uses MySQL's full text search. It worked really well (even given my complete inability to design a workable interface) and it lives on one of my (really freakin' slow) servers, so I can use it from anywhere. I stopped using it when I went Mac, however.

Why not use bookmarks, and have your browser export them now and then?

That's what I do, and it works perfectly!

Thanks for making me sick to my stomach today.

take a look on freshmeat, there seems to be quite a few projects dedicated to bookmark management.

*chuckle* I blog a lot of mine on my Interesting Things page. Supremely easy, and Typepad's QuickPost thingy lets me add, file, and take away at my whim. Hey, and I don't even work in tech - I'm all impressed with myself now!

Ever since I added a bookmarklet that lets me quickly add items to my mini-link-list on my blog, I've used it far more than IE's stupid bookmarks.

I keep thinking I should make a private version for the less interesting things.

create a weblog with blogger and then use the Blogger Icon on the google toolbar. Your site will be a link in the blogger weblog.

I use Yahoo's Companion toolbar to share my bookmarks among many PC's. Works OK, as long as your PC's are running windows and IE.

Too bad I run neither Windows or IE.

Doesn't Yahoo's toolbar install a bunch of spyware and other junk on your computer?

Here's a solution you might try - I don't know much about it, but perhaps...
