This is only about the software, not the service! Only free software.

Split solutions by type of sharing: simple solutions, complex with RSS, complex without RSS, social networks

A serious ialitmtion of the Bookmarks Synchronizer extension (aside from the accidentally-deleted-bookmarks thing that I too know from experience) is that it doesn't seem to handle Live Bookmarks very well. Whenever I use it to sync my live bookmarks, invariably the feeds fail to load. I may try the newer extension called SyncMarks. Dunno if it will be any better. If the Live Bookmarks synching worked well, I would be set. I use del.icio.us to store my bookmarks and targeted live bookmarks in my browser so that I don't have to do much with it and this works out pretty well. If I could get those to synch up on a webDav server, I would be in business. Also, I have the added problem of sometimes using a public terminal at school where I would love to have access to my bookmarks outside of del.icio.us. Perhaps I should set up a links page on my webdav server that links to the targeted tag combination that I have for my Live Bookmarks. The only problem would be serving up my LBMs as tag links instead of RSS feeds. hmm . so much to figure out.Godspeed, A serious ialitmtion of the Bookmarks Synchronizer extension (aside from the accidentally-deleted-bookmarks thing that I too know from experience) is that it doesn't seem to handle Live Bookmarks very well.
