    Hi, I have just got my first Mac - PB.
    Being a windows user at work I use IE6 and yahoo companion toolbar that allows me to use my bookmarks anywhere.
    Haven't been able to find anything like this so far with Safari - albeit a very cursory look.
    I would like to be able to do this with my mac at home and my wintel at work.

    Anybody have any suggestions?

    Safari is tied into .Mac for getting two or more Macs to have the same bookmarks. Now with trading bookmarks with IE6 and Safari, just needs you to send the bookmarks over to the Mac. Network them together, then copy and paste your favorites folder on over. Sorry that I don't know of any good solution that will do this like Yahoo's bar for the PC and .Mac for the Mac.

    Also with .Mac you can access your bookmarks as a smallpop up window with clickable links, folders, etc just as if you were working on your mac. The pop window is a little bothersome but if you have plenty of screen space it is an easy to sync your bookmarks with a PC or any computer that is hooked up to the internet. Nothing to download, etc., you just sign into .Mac and open bookmarks.
