Anybody use any web-based bookmarks?

I've been thinking this might be a good idea now. I use way too many OSes... several XPs, OSX, Kubuntu, Fedora, and even Vista.

Backflip has been around for a few years... but i'm not too keen on their layout. Any other out there that may be better?

Whoa, i was just wondering if Google had something like this, since my homepage is google already... and apparently it does! Now, lets just see how well it can handle the amount of bookmarks i'm going to need (doesn't look like you can organize it too well).

That's exactly what i *was* looking for! But i'm REALLY liking the google version now... the way you categorize it is so similar to gmail, i just like that. Also, since i already use google search, google mail, google calendar, it just works seamlessly for me... if/when google adds a calendar agenda to the personalized page, and i will be soooo set.

Looks like it's built into the Google toolbar.

EDIT: Yep, I just installed it and it requires the Google toolbar and a Gmail account. I downloaded it from Firefox bu it only installed in IE. Can't the Google toolbar be put into Firefox?

You don't even need to install google toolbar to use the bookmark tool in Firefox (although there is a version for firefox i believe). Go to the bookmark section of google, and at the very bottom should be an option to add a Google Bookmark link to your browser... just drag and drop that into the links section, and it pretty much just adds a javascript that you can use to bookmark pages.

Ahhh... I'll give that a try. Thanks!

Here's the actual script:

Just paste that into the URL of the bookmark, and whenever you want to bookmark, hit that and you'll get the bookmark page popup.

Thanks for pointing out that I don't need the toolbar. So far, google bookmarks are pretty sweet. The only problem I see with them is that I don't know how to access them without logging in, which is only a problem if I want to view them from an untrusted computer. Other than that they're perfect.
