On any normal day, I’m most likely to use at least 2 to 3 different PCs and on these PCs I can either boot on Linux or Windows which means that I have 6 different platforms (Fiesty, Dapper, OpenSuse 10.3, Windows 2000 -2 machines and Windows Media Centre) on which I’m likely to browse the web.Since most data is now stored on the web this doesn’t pose any major problem but I still have my bookmarks locally on each of these machines – going to delicious each time, on my crappy Internet connection, is a pain and so I endup having different bookmarks on the diffrent PCs. So how do I do when I need a page which I bookmarked at work and I’m at home?
Foxmarks is a nice little extension (Add-on) to firefox that allows you to sync your bookmarks. As soon as you’ve created an account, your bookmarks will be uploaded on the foxmarks server and as soon as the extension is installed on another machine, it will allow you to sync you bookmarks. The end result is sync bookmarks on all machines.
Foxmarks + del.icio.us (I’m just thinking aloud here)
So since Foxmarks and del.icio.us seem to work so well, why not integrate these two systems. del.icio.us allows you to tag pages which bookmarks do not but an extension which modifies the bookmark abilities of your browser could do the trick and ask you for tags when a page is bookmarked. Sync your foxmark and del.icio.us account could prove a winning combination.
