I've got my bookmarks in Chrome currently, and am prone to just bookmarking something if it contains any info I may need for the project I'm currently working on. I had found a way to tag them with delicious and then get an export from that into a wordpress test server (with the tags), having a post for each bookmark, but this proved to be a bit of a waste of time, as there's no way to organize it well.

Ideally I'd like to find some sort of mind-mapper with a Prezi-like view, that does auto tagging, excerpting and allows me to notate things effectively. Does my dream tool even exist?

I've usually got 20+ tags open all at once because there may be something open on each I need to see/know to make my current project work. It's frustrating.

Though I'm on Win7, I'm interested to hear about any tools that are out there that work to take your existing bookmarks and help you organize them productively.

I think Diigo.com is a tool that can really help you migrate from your Chrome bookmarks. I too was using Chrome's bookmarks and Firefox bookmarks and Opera bookmarks, and a PC-based tool called PowerMarks (probably the best bookmarking tool ever, but they are going out of business). I use many different browsers so I had bookmarks spread all over the place. I found Diigo.com after much research and settled on it. The more I use it, the more I appreciate being in the "cloud". Try it, you might like it. For note-taking, I'm settling on Evernote and still exploring Springpadit.com

Good luck on your quest... greg

I did eventually sign up for diigo -- and it's after signup that you actually see their pricing. They may be worth it, but not to me for how they are arranging things. –  tomcat23 Feb 2 '11 at 8:32

I use Linkman for bookmarks and ActionOutline for thoughts and projects. I have over 12,000 bookmarks in Linkman and the live search makes it a breeze to find anything I want. I originally used delicious, then Diigo, then tried out a dozen bookmark managers and Linkman was the only one that could handle them gracefully. I love having all my bookmarks searchable in seconds. I use Dropbox to sync them to different machines.

ActionOutline is lightweight, quick to search and everything has a keyboard shortcut. My only complaint is you can't restrict the search to an individual note. Search covers the entire outline.

Neither are free, but Linkman has a lite version and ActionOutline has a free trial.
