If I come across a particular site and it seems too long a read at that moment, I just bookmark it for a later read. I just finished organizing my bookmarks, realizing that I had way too many and created subfolders. :flowers:

I have about 5 subfolders and then I still have about 20 sites individually on the list.

I hate when I just organize my bookmarks and then have a whole bunch of sites added to a short list. :thumbsup:

I've got 94 sub-folders.
I stopped counting links, at 300, and I wasn't a quarter of the way through.
I guess it's time to go through them, and clean some out. :flowers:

What is a nice database of knowledge is "del.icio.us" Is a shared database of bookmarks stored by all Firefox users. here is some info on that. If I am looking for something this is even better as google since they are catagorized on text.

Same here. My Opera Bookmarks contain so many overfilled folders and subfolders that I get lost when migrating through them. Some day I will clean and reorganize them.

TheTerrorist_75,

Everyday I meander through my bookmarks and say I need to clean them out. It's just so hard to figure what ones need to go. hahahaaa!

You can judge how clean someone's house is by how organized there bookmarks are. :thumbsup:
