I use almost ten different computers on different networks over a normal day since i roam around much in my work. One thing i find lacking is keeping my bookmarks avaliable wherever i go. There are solutions that lets one manage the bookmarks online but its all done by hand and not smooth at all. Adding bookmarks is a real PITA in all forms i have tried. It would be extremely easy to setup a server to keep a list of users and their respective html files with the links in them. Doing it in that way makes the system accessible from any browser without any plugin. But, making a plugin that adds and manages the links in firefox/mozilla would be very handy for many of us. I havent seen any product like this so its perhaps patentable and if so i gladly would let the OSS community have it. My implementations would work like this: The user has an account on a http or ftp server with read and write rights on a file. The file is in normal html to make it useful without the plugin. That way you can read it from anywhere and from any application capable of html. The tags should just be normal link tags and nothing fancy. The plugin manages login to the http server, reads the html file and displays the links in the bookmarks menu. After having added something the plugin should save to the server the changes. Adding links should be done in normal fashion ie ctrl-d or by dragging and dropping them. The most important thing is to be able to add bookmarks easily and securely. Maybe this have been done before and i havent been able to find it but its one feture i think would give Firefox and Mozilla a leg up on IE, Opera and other browsers. Sure you can use profiles but how often arent you on a network you cant control? This system makes it possible to access the bookmarks from anywhere you have an internet connection since they are in a plain html file. Best Regards Daniel Hedblom Reproducible: Always
You might look at solutions like : - Bookmarks Synchronizer <https://addons.mozilla.org/extensions/moreinfo.php?application=firefox&category=Bookmarks&numpg=10&id=14> - Chipmark <https://addons.mozilla.org/extensions/moreinfo.php?application=firefox&category=Bookmarks&numpg=10&id=666> - Firefox Bookmark Share <https://addons.mozilla.org/extensions/moreinfo.php?application=firefox&category=Bookmarks&numpg=10&id=617> The Synchronizer looks the best candidate, b/c it uses WebDAV. Setting up a central server would be easy.
Hi! Bookmark Synchronizer was exactly what i had in my mind and it works just splendid on my ftp and http servers. It supports http, https and ftp. All i need now is to see if the developer is interested in saving the same info in plain html an option so i can access the same info from any browser without a plugin. Thank you very much!
