yahoo bookmarks or better?

by peter007744 / October 20, 2006 1:43 AM PDT

First problem: I use yahoo bookmarks, but I have over 1,000 book marks. And I think yahoo bookmarks only lets you save up to 1,000 and no more... do you know of any different and or better FREE programs that will let you store more than 1,000?

SECOND question: I am using mozilla firefox more and more and only use IE 6 and soon to be IE7 when I need to. (like in hotmail email application when you click on delete certain emails, after you click on ?delete? the pop up window that asks if you are sure you want to delete the emails? doesn?t open up large enough for you to click ?ok? and you cant resize it ..etc and some other finance web sites that don?t play well with mozilla?etc)

anways, I am trying to find the best way of SYNCRONIZING (so I don?t duplicate) all of my favorites in mozilla (probably around 800, some unique and some duplicates) with the over 1,000 favorites in my IE6 and soon to be IE7?

Forever indebt! Thanks so much in advance for any info!

1.) I don't use any online services for bookmarks...I simply use Firefox. Portable Firefox can be installed to and run from a flash drive, meaning you have your browser, preferences, and bookmarks with you no matter where you go.

2.) To take care of the sizing issue I use the extension JavaScript Options. (Sorry, it's no longer available from Mozilla.) It adds a new menu under Options so that you can prevent a website from hiding the address bar, preventing you from resizing the window, etc. In short, you once again have control over your browser.

3.) You can use the Import option in both Firefox and Internet Explorer to import bookmarks/favorites from the other. You can then use the extension Bookmark Duplicate Detector to eliminate all of the dupes.

Just keep me in mind if you win the lottery. Happy

Another Aternative to Bookmarks/Favorites

I have mine in Yahoo also but, in the event someting goes wrong, have them put on a wordpad (the url), drop in a floppy, click the floppy icon and put on A drive. Also portable and can be copied to another floppy. You can create a second floppy with more Bookmarks and they are portable. rub pennies together and they squeak
