Software Suggestions?

Can anyone recommend a good bookmark-manager program? I'm drowning in references, especially academic ones that I can neither ditch nor organize effectively using Mozilla's built-in tools. Thanks!

I like Firefox's tools. But isn't Firefox just enhanced Mozilla Lite?

I meant Firefox . . . but yeah, I'm having trouble keeping up using it. Let me think & see whether I can articulate why. :)

Jess, I wish I could help you, but I never have problems tracking my stuff. But then, I don't need to reference obscure stuff all the time like you do.

Unfortunately, Firefox isn't updating their extension list on a regular basis. This is starting to annoy supporting programmers, since like Web Developer is way past the version .8 they have on the getfirefox.com site.

So my guess is that someone has already monkeyed with Firefox to give you more link alternatives.

In the meantime, explain what you want and I'll help you find it!

I have friends who use the following:
http://del.icio.us/
to keep track of their links. I haven't used it, so I can't comment on it in detail.

i had been thinking of del.icio.us, but i don’t think its strengths play to what kleenestar may be trying to do. one can certainly tag bookmarks with keywords, but i would consider its best features the collaborative aspects, i.e. the ease with which you can publish your bookmarks and see how many other people have bookmarked the same site.

maybe something like Pluck might fit the bill a bit better?

del.icio.us is awesome, but I find it hard to easily see everything I've tagged in a useful format. I'm downloading Pluck as I type.

You guys are the bestest. :)

I love del.icio.us, personally. It's kind of amazing how many people are writing software that plugs into their API....
