WFMW: my bookmarks

Most people have multiple computers in the home right now. When I first started jumping back and forth between the laptop and desktop, it was a pain not to have all my bookmarks on the current computer I was on. I discovered www.mybookmarks.com It took a little bit of work getting used to having 2 windows open all the time, and switching between them for bookmarks, but now I don't even notice, and I've got all my bookmarks handy no matter which computer I'm on.

I never heard of this, but I will definitely check it out since I, too, switch between the laptop and desktop. Thanks for posting this!

Thank you SO much for this tip! I switch between laptop, desktop and work computer and get so frustrated looking for things sometimes. I love WFMW!!!

I don't use the computer in the basement too much (it's mostly for the kids), but one reason I don't is because I miss my bookmarks! Also, with XP, even if dh is logged in (instead of me) and I just want to check something, I can't access "my stuff." This is great!

Cool! (Good to know ahead of time for when I get my second computer!)

I have multiple windows open all the time: for blogging, and just because my computer is so slow I get impatient.

Try Mozilla for the tabbed browsing. That way, you don't have to have several different windows open at once.

BP's Wife - I love Mozilla! Doesn't it make the tabbed browsing fantastic? Doesn't solve the bookmarks on different computers issue, though. :)

IE7 also has tabs - trying to get it to download now

also, try bloglines to keep all your blogs together

Delicious is also great for bookmarks - mine is here: http://del.icio.us/joymombecky

Glad it is working for you!

Oh this is just perfect.... we have 3 computers in the house and when I have to use one of the others, I find myself annoyed that I don't have my bookmarks. :)

Great tip :)

i started using del.icio.us for this reason, but just didn't stick with it. I am trying to get started with bloglines now. i haven't done the one you suggested. I might check it out.
