I have something like 2 thousand bookmarks, I'm not a hoarder I just work hard and have a lot of online resources for the things I do. Ever since I started using a computer I've been dependent on the default functionality of the browser's bookmark manager. Now the problem is I have actually found myself become discouraged to save a bookmark for a number of reasons.
For one over the years I have lost thousands of valuable bookmarks. This is largely because no cloud service existed for bookmarks and if I had a failed hard-drive I'd loose everything. So when browsers started offering cloud-based bookmark saving I jumped on that right away.
To my dismay I quickly found out that the cloud solution on both Firefox and chrome suffer from major issues like things not going into the right order or bookmarks being not where I left them and this discouraged me to the point that I just turned the services off. I'd rather have no cloud solution than never know if the bookmark I saved actually is saved and saved in the right location.
So one day I'm sitting here at my desk with a highly valuable resource that I just found on reddit and I'm thinking to myself "do I even bother save this link right now". I won't have access to it from anywhere except this computer, it will be lost in a tool that I really don't care for anymore. And that's when it hit me, I should love my bookmark manager, there really needs to be something better. Something that's inspired by the current century.
