Regarding PowerMarks, I tried it and at first sight I see three big limitations with it:
- All imported bookmarks end up in the tree root. A choice to select where do you want the imported bookmarks to be put would be nice.
- I didnt find any way to reorganize folders: drag and drop doesnt work in the folder tree frame, and only bookmark items show up in the right frame.-thorazine74 (October 25, 2008, 05:25 PM)
That's just the beauty of Powermarks: it does not use folders at all! It uses keywords and an incredibly efficient and lightning-fast search engine. As you start to type a keyword, bookmarks start dropping off the list if they don't have those characters in their keywords.
You can also tag keywords and use those as "folders" if you wish, because they show up on the left pane, and if you clic on a tagged keyword, all bookmarks labeled with it will show on the screen.
If you've ever used Gmail with its tags instead of folders, you'll understand the Powermarks system -- one huge difference is that the PM search is much better than Gmail's, since it's instant and incremental.
Powermarks also does not allow duplicate URLs, so you don't have to worry about weeding them out. If you bookmark something that's already there, it'll pop up the existing bookmark window so you can add keywords or comments, etc.
Once you've used Powermarks for a while, going back to organizing in folders seems like a huge step back into the age of dinosaurs.
