So, I use Google’s Firefox plugin to synchronise my bookmarks between work and home. It worked well – or used to until I started using Firefox 2 at home. Anyway, for no apparent reason, yesterday it trashed my bookmarks at home. And then today, at work, it decided it would synchronise after all, and trashed my bookmarks at work to.
I guess the lesson is to always maintain redundancy. Fortunately, the guys writing Firefox (presumably ‘cos they had problems with the bookmarks too) took to storing backups of the bookmark file – and that has worked nicely in this instance.
Anyway, it’s enough to put me off – I shall be looking for something else. I gather that Delicious (insert your own dots) has a good Firefox plugin, and works by tagging, which is good also. I’m just a wee bit worried as I really want to have a heirarchy too – so I can drill down, rather than just getting a ‘pool’ of matching tags.
