Saving Bookmarks Online?

from the why-bother? dept

I have said this before, but why are all these companies that involve saving bookmarks online popping up? Bookmarks (and/or favorites if you’re an IE kind of person) seem to work just fine. I don’t hear too many people complaining about them. Yet, these sites have been showing up everywhere, and some have way too much hype. Salon takes a look at these sites and concludes you’re probably better off without them.

Saving Bookmarks Online.

Well, I had so many bookmarks(over 200) that I was finding it increasingly annoying to step through three-deep trees to get to the ones I’d bothered to sort. One day I got the bright idea to add the bookmarks to the links page on my website, and I now use that as my “web portal” when I’m browsing. If I see a URL I want to remember, I just add it to a local text file until I have the time to evaluate it and decide whether to add it to the page or not.
