How do you manage different favorite databases?

How do you manage different favorite databases?
Normally you need at least 3 browsers (IE, Firefox, Opera) to surf the web for compatibility reasons. How do you synchronize the bookmarks of the different browsers?

There have been previous requests for this kind of thing, i think.. Here are some resources:
Browsers, Bookmarks, & synching
Multi-browser Bookmark Synchronization Tool and Other Multi-Browser Ideas?

RecentX - http://www.conceptworld.com/RecentX/

This program lists all the favorites from IE & Firefox in a single list. Easy to access.

Thanks.

I use Bookmark Bridge -it sync's between Opera, Firefox, and Internet Explorer.

For years, I've happily used Powermarks: http://www.kaylon.com/power.html.  This modestly priced shareware is the best bookmark manager/organizer I know.  No more dragging bookmarks to a category, no more forgetting what category you put a bookmark in. Powermarks is extremely fast, efficient, easy to use. You can use it with Netscape, Internet Explorer, Opera, Firefox, Mozilla, and/or NetCaptor; if you change browsers, you needn't worry about moving your bookmarks/favorites.  It integrates with all these browsers, I think.  I routinely use Firefox and Opera, and from time to time IE 6, and Powermarks gives me access to all my bookmarks (about 3000 of them) no matter which browser I use.  And I can find any of these 3000 bookmarks in about one second.  I love Powermarks!

Me too! I've been using Powermarks (http://www.kaylon.com/power.html) since 1999; it was the first shareware program I ever registered. I can't imagine using the internet without it.

Powermarks allows me to instantly create a bookmark and assign my own keywords (tags) to it, and to find bookmarks instantly by keyword, partial keyword, a boolean expression of keywords, or arbitrary text within the bookmark's metadata. A newly created keyword gets added on the spot to the dynamic dictionary of keywords, which is displayed down the left side of the screen.

Unfortunately, it's also the main reason I've not moved from Windows to Linux or OSX. del.icio.us doesn't begin to approach Powermarks in capability and flexibility.

I found  a nice add on to FF
It's called PlainOldFavorites. With this plugin you can use IE Favorites within FF.
This is a really good solution  :Thmbsup:
