I have been using the Internet for the past six years and thus have various bookmark files (.html) stored everywhere. 80% of them are duplicated because I used to import from various browsers and thus it is a big mess.

For a while I've been using an online bookmarking tool - Xmarks - where I have been saving them in a very neat and tidy manner. However the previous year of bookmarks are not there and I can't risk importing them into Xmarks as it would be a real mess.

I need a bookmark manager where I can access all my bookmarks, remove any unwanted/useless bookmarks, categorise them, and then import them into Xmarks.

Any suggestions for this?

From experience I know that after six years, 70% of websites will disappear. Half your bookmarks are probably already taken off the web. –  digitxp Jun 18 '11 at 15:19

I would recommend delicious.

  1. Create an account
  2. Import your bookmarks
  3. Use one of the "dead bookmark checkers" available here
  4. Use a desktop application to organize and manage your bookmarks, available on the same link as above, depending on what OS you use.

thanks for comment... but can you tell me which software are you telling me in Step 3? –  Romil N Jun 22 '11 at 11:03
if you use Windows, then sites.google.com/site/freshdelicious . if Linux, then unixdaemon.net/delicious-checker.html –  ilakast Jun 24 '11 at 22:31

I've been using Linkman Pro (there's a free version too) to manage my bookmarks. Being able to instantly search is much faster than the search interfaces of the online bookmark managers like Delicious, Pinboard and Diigo.
