What solution do you have for web bookmarks management ?


Hi Bartender, can I have one Coke zero please ? Thank you.

Hello guys and girls,

I have a question, what do you use to manage your web bookmarks ?

I have some bookmarks on my browser (the main bookmarks) and I have a pinboard account with about 6000 web bookmarks (yes, I know) since about 6 years and I have to renew in a few weeks, but I don't know if I want to keep it and repay (the base price double since last time I paid, and I had discount because I paid for 5 years)

Furthermore, I try to use the bookmark part on my Nextcloud, but it is too slow for me... Maybe, it tries to do some sync of my ~6000 bookmarks and download a lot of things on my Nextcloud, but I don't know.

If you have any suggestion about bookmarks management, I will be happy.


Browser bookmarks -> Listography -> Are.na -> Personal wiki

I missed the boat on lifetime Pinboard.



Hello everyone! Bartender, please give me something warm to drink. My house is too cold! Do you have 'ponche con piquete'? What a shame! Anything will work....


In college time I used the Bookmarks from the Browser (Firefox and then Chrome), then online solutions like del.icio.us.

I think I can't suggest anything. I discovered that I hate managing lists, I try to keep my bookmarks list close to 0 (and the same for email, I have those mailboxes with 7,000 unread)

Nowadays, usually looking for the first result in the search engine (DDG, Google, Kagi) is enough. The History of the Browser is cool too, lastly I paste it in some chat with Links to check later. Usually to Session or Telegram Instant Messengers.


What I have A LOT is passwords stored on BitWarden. Bad thing is that they are not cached locally. If I don't get Internet, I can't use my (online) services, so maybe is not that dangerous.

Perhaps something open sourced could help you?



I've literally never never needed more bookmarks than a web browser could store for me. If I need to sync I just manually export them from one machine to the other.



A plain text file that I occasionally back up onto my SD Card for when I'm going outside for a bit.



not a solution for everyone of course, but I use firefox sync since that is the browser I use on most platforms.



also same. I use it on all my devices, so why not sync the links through it instead of some other service?

I realise this is the same slippery slope thinking that empowers apple fan boys, but genuinely I am happy with Mozilla (despite their slow descent into darkness)



Same, it's integrated into the web browser so I can take advantage of other extensions having access to those bookmarks (like tridactyl).



I just have a... text file :)

Nothing fancy but that's the way I like the most.




Org Mode

Everything you need



A fundamentalist, I see :-)

One major caveat with keeping bookmarks this way:

  • Not mobile friendly. You're more often than not in front of your phone than in front of your laptop, especially in times of content discovery (e.g. commuting, on toilet, etc.) Pasting a link into your termux org doc via mobile phone is a horrible experience.

I hope you're using the "general you" and not addressing me specifically, because that is not my use case at all.

  • My "commute" is a flight of stairs to my home office.
  • I only read paper books in the crapper.


fair enough ;-)



I self-host Wallabag. It took a while to import my pinboard.in bookmarks, but it's generally been worth it. Good Firefox extension, decent mobile app, good integration with KOReader on my ebook reader. A bit hard to set up.



I slowly morphed my web desires from being based on what I thought I'd want to remember/revisit to whatever comes my way in moments of fits of following content associations.
