I am looking for a tool, which helps me to organize my personal bookmarks.

I want to be able to assign tags and free comments to a bookmark.

I want to search my bookmarks by

  • tags
  • date of bookmarking
  • pattern in title
  • pattern in url

It would be nice to be web based to enable sharing my bookmarks between different machines.

But for it would be OK, if it works on a single machine as long as it has some import/export way to transfer the links to a new machine replacing the old.

As browsers I'm using Firefox and ChromePlus. It would be nice, if the solution works with both browsers.

With free comments, I mean additional remarks stored for a bookmark, which is not essential for searching.

Sorry, not really a question for stack-overflow. Perhaps (sister site to SO) – Will Hughes Jan 16 '11 at 11:52
meanwhile I found . Can you tell me about Firefox Extensions expanding Firefox's bookmark manager? – bernd_k Jan 16 '11 at 12:49

I've been using Xmarks for some time now, and I think that it supports everything you listed. You can synchronize bookmarks across several computers and there's a web interface for bookmark management.

They did switch to freemium model recently, but I think that all bookmark capabilities are still free.

I used xmark in the past. But stopped last the end of 2010. Didn't notice that they are back. Good to know. Xmarks solves the sync part and I just found that Firefox Bookmark manager fulfills most of my other requirements – bernd_k Jan 16 '11 at 12:37
