    hey all,

    I save bookmarks a lot, but there doesn't seem to be any sane way (sane includes time saving) to really organize them and get back to the ones I want, when I want. Some sites I can use RSS, but others I can't. And plenty of times I save sites for the future only to never know they are still there. It would be nice if there was a way for Safari to have a sort of smartlist function like iTunes and iPhoto so that you could define lists not just on made up categories but also with cross categories and how frequently you visit them. What sort of programs, systems, etc. do you all use to help make sense of your bookmarks?

    I currently use Safari for my browsing, although I do have Firefox, Camino, Netscape, and...well, IE is worthless... Anyway, I like some features on Firefox (particularly the ability to let certain sites still use pop-ups), but it doesn't seem to have the nice Bookmarks bar that I use on Safari constantly (has my weather at, news, Mac sites, my University sites, blog login, reference, and my banking and money it's pretty usesful). Am I wrong about Firefox not being able to do this?

    Any strong arguments either way in regards to Firefox vs Safari?

    All I know is that as insane as my bookmarks get in Firefox, I like how easy it is to get to them. Safari has the bookmark bar, which is brilliant, but for the rest of my bookmarks, I like Firefox much better.

    I use both browsers regularly, so I like both. I like the ability to click the 3rd scroll-wheel button on a link and have it open to a new tab. I like bookmarks in Firefox better, but the bookmarks I use most are in the Bookmarks bar in Safari, and that's pretty sweet. :eek:

    I also believe FireFox is faster.
