I gave up on keeping loads of bookmarks in my browser a while back. I
have a few for those sites I visit daily. For some others I just start
typing and let the history do the rest. Anything I find interesting
gets added to my del.icio.us list. I can access that from anywhere and
I like the social aspects.


My latest favourite FF add-on is Operator. It looks for Microformat
data in a page and gives you various ways to use it, e.g. import an
hcard contact, create a calendar appointment, view XFN details. You
have to set up some scripts to get the most from it. Works nicely with
sites like last.fm
