storing bookmarks and files online

by beelissa / March 10, 2008 5:19 AM PDT

I just got my new little Asus Eee PC and I'm realizing that I'm going to be going back and forth between computers even more now. I wondered if you all have any suggestions for good sites where I can keep my bookmarks up-to-date. I have one old desktop that won't run Firefox, for some reason, fo I need something that works in Opera. Also maybe some place to store files online without having to pay for it? I'd love to hear your recommendations, thanks!

this might not be what your looking for, but I've been using protopage.com to organize my bookmarks. It's pretty handy if your bouncing around different PC's.

As far as i know, they don't give you space to store files though.

bookmarks

I believe that del.icio.us is the killer-app when it comes to storing bookmarks online. You can use the service without plugins, but using the plugins available make it work better. Plus you can share your bookmarks with the public (or hide them if you like), and easily see what other people have made public (http://del.icio.us/acedtect, http://del.icio.us/m5olly) and you can see what people have bookmarked with similar tags (http://del.icio.us/tag/BOL).

In reply to: bookmarks

What I was hoping for was a site that had the fuctionality of letting me upload the bookmarks I already have. Like when I signed up for Foxmarks, it took the bookmarks from my computer. However, I can't seem to access those from the machine that runs Opera. So I want something compatible with Opera and Firefox. I just signed up for del.icio.us and I don't see any way to upload a bunch of bookmarks. Am I missing something?

Thanks for your help!

I am glad you found it. If firefox is your primary browser you might consider installing the firefox del.icio.us addon. The additional sidebar makes it even better.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
