Ok, I know there are lots of social networking sites for sharing your bookmarks with everyone and yeah... even yourself.

On my main computer I have an incredible collection of bookmarks, 12 main and roughly 60 sub-categories - and I haven't found a thing I can't find or categorize instantly, really cool.

My other computers are a mess, and I want to 1) move my good list to the other firefoxes 2) have them available online so I have a backup and access for me and others I choose to share with.

What do you use and why is it better than others?

My other project is file sharing with 2 Win 7 and 2 XP PCs. I know, the Win7 supposed to be major easy, I get the file transfer chest on my desktop, both Win7 say they are configured okay, but when I put files in them, they don't appear in the other computers - this I think may be a firewall "Norton" issue, but I just started this last night.

Should have made two posts but any links to really good walk throughs on file sharing would be helpful too.

Really want to get the bookmark thing going, I just have this fear that I'll over-write my good bookmarks with my junk-drawer of bookmarks by mistake. Any and all help please Smiley

I wanted to add I've just started using Firefox Sync - figured it out and it is really cool to see the updates I make on the desktop MAGICALLY change on the laptop.  I'm pretty comfortable with this, but still curious what you use.

Looking over Xmarks now... Features are similar to Firefox Sync, so far. I see the biggy is the Internet bookmark access - very nice.

It is just NICE to move from pc to pc in the house and know I don't have to search for some site I accidentally found and bookmarked and will likely never find it again to use on a different computer.

Since I made the TOP Bookmark Folder "Tracey's Stuff" I hear no more "I can't find anything" cause I did have all the features checked and looking at her screen looked like mine - now, I have all mine, she has all hers, but we still have personalized looks to our browser.

For randomly searching for stuff I chose as interesting to me, I use STUBLE (in Firefox) it is www.stumbleupon.com on the web. It is just cool to know that almost every random site it finds I'll have some (if not a lot) of interest in. Ptobably half my bookmarks, especially the recipe related ones I found through stumble. Searching to find obscure topics can be endless futility, Stumble at least throws the dart in the right direction.

Been playing with Xmarks fr an hour now - really cool. It works well with Firefox Sync and only thing needed is to restart browser to see changes and modifications.

I just wonder if the Fed Air Force Computer will allow me access - that would be nice. The only there place would be at friend's houses or the library. Cool though, thanks.

I use Xmarks to keep firefox, chrome, and IE browsers all in sync with my home & work PCs (total of 5) and have been completely satisfied with it.
