Suggest a good, free bookmark/favorites organizer
I have a bunch of Favorites. I need a good favorites organizer to make them more usable. Prefer free license. Thanks0
I continue to use Delicious as I have found it the easiest way for me to quickly tag/share/store links. It hasn't seen a lot of improved features over the past few years, but now that it has been relinquished by Yahoo I expect it will only improve.
Though I don't have any direct experience with it, I have several friends who prefer XMarks.
Not free, but you're supporting an start-up. It's like Delicious without the glam.
I used delicious, switched to pinboard and also use XMarks and Instapaper too, just to throw in a tool that's a bit more than a bookmark organizer. I dropped delicious when they were going through their Yahoo issues. Wasn't really unhappy with the service but was unhappy with Yahoo.
I use each service differently:
Depending on your needs, they're all good tools.
I'm still not exactly sure what to use myself, but for strictly bookmarking, I like using the Google Chrome bookmarks. The things I like about it are:
1) Built-in sync across browsers 2) When I save the bookmark, I can put tags in the name of the bookmark. Then rather than having to look for it, I just start typing search terms on the address field of Chrome and I get a combination of Google search results, with my bookmarks showing up with a star next to them. Real easy to find my bookmark. 3) I keep my most frequently used bookmarks on the bookmark bar at the top of the browser window. 4) It's well supported and continues to improve, which I'm not as confident will happen to other bookmarking options I've tried, some of which have gotten "improved" to the point where I hate them now. 5) It's open, so that you can export your bookmarks if you want to jump ship and go somewhere else. 6) Best of all, it's free!
I use Google Bookmarks (google.com/bookmarks). It's not fancy, but free and everything is stored in one place online, so there is no need to "sync" between browsers.
These are the most handy features to me:
Try bookmax.net. It´s fast and good to handle.
Apparently the people who did Youtube bought delicious so it might improve.
