6 ways to fall in love with browser’s bookmark again

Since I’ve started to use del.icio.us, I stopped to use my browser’s bookmark for a while. I love the online bookmarking tool because it gives me access on all of my links from any computers (at work or home) without doing any syncing – and I didn’t find a reason to continue using local bookmark anymore. Recently I thought of ways to utilize the browser’s bookmark system again, and I think those are pretty good ways to speed up my browsing experience.

  • Store the online bookmarking URL. This is obvious – it gives me a quick way to access my actual bookmark.
  • Store the daily visits. I remember all URLs on my daily visits by heart, but keeping those on my bookmark toolbar can give me the access immediately.
  • Keep all “Write Post” URLs on my various blogs. Quick access for me to write should I have any quick ideas for my blogs.
  • Keep still-to-sort sites. I do not want to pollute my online bookmarks with stuff that I will not reference later, so I will keep them into a “sorting” folder first if I am unsure.
  • Keep URLs for short-term. Similar to the reason above, I use the local bookmark to store those URL and remove them when it is not required.
  • Things that are irrelevant to others – no point to put those into my online bookmark if other people cannot utilize it – things such as web site stat pages and admin pages etc.

And I admit, I fall in love with my local bookmark once again. How do you use your browser’s bookmark on-top of your online bookmarks?
