Lightbulb bookmark managers


Does anyone know if there are any bookmark manager programs that are independant? i.e. don't need to be installed on your computer or be on the net, but can be stored on a floppy disk or something?

This might be something you could use

http://www.foxbow.de/software/ebm/index.html

EasyBookMarks ebm is a little PHP scriptset that allows you to collect and maintain Weblinks on a webpage (The page could probably be stored locally) .

With the program it is possible to maintain a list of bookmarks not attached to the browser that's being used.

Ta. But I'm looking for a bookmark program that DOESN"T have to be installed on the computer. I'm looking for something that can be stored on a floppy or a USB drive that I can take with me. I don't have a computer so I use the ones at Uni & that means I hardly if ever use the same computer twice, I don't want to use one that's on the web.

I was interested in this post for similar reasons. I would like something that would help me categorize the millions of bookmarks I've amassed in an easier way than the Mozilla "manage bookmarks" option or in Windows Explorer.

For your needs, however, why not export your bookmarks to the .html file and tar it up and place it on a floppy? That way if your bookmarks are a few megs, after tarring they will be tiny, thus you can fit them all on a floppy and take them anywhere. Then, when you get to a place where you have no bookmarks, you can untar the file, and either import it into IE or Mozilla/Netscape/Firebird or you can just read it as an .html file on the machine ....so you don't leave your favorites where you don't want them left. That's what I'd do.

I would suspect crosspy has thought about this and is looking for "the easy way out" not having to rely on editors etc. but rather on a program that can run off his/her floppy. However I do agree that doing it via a clean HTML makes sense and gives quite a good cross platform compatibility I didn't originally want to suggest it as I got the impression that crosspy was looking for a floppy based editor approach without third party solutions being implemented.
