Xmarks syncs bookmarks, history and open tabs cross browser.
I believe the open tabs sync is a premium feature but the rest is free. You can see more features here but it definitely has features you're after. I don't use this any more as I only tend to use Chrome now but I have used it for several years (up until recently)
OneNote sounds close to what you want.
deep hierarchy support (limited by length of the path)
now free to download on Windows and Mac
view on web via http://www.onenote.com/
Android, Chrome, iOS, WP7 apps
you can tag items and get a summary (and customise the tags)
full text search including images that contain text
export to Word, PDF, and MHTML (which I'...
As Nick Wilde (hey, my name is also Nick!) already said, Xmarks is a great solution to sync your bookmarks.
However, I feel the need to give some additional information.
The Xmarks extension syncs your bookmarks (and passwords) in various browsers.
It does this by uploading the bookmarks to their website, and then the extension will download them to the ...
I'm using Wallabag for this. It is written in PHP using Symfony2, the database can be anything from SQLite to MySQL to PostgreSQL.
From the feature requirements, it can do all what you want. The only let down I can see, which annoys me, is that you can't add tags when you store a link. You have to go to the link and add them there. There is an issue for ...
KMPlayer is the perfect media player for this (and for everything else :).
I switched from VLC to this a year ago, because of the (simple) bookmark feature, and you can play any format of video.
To bookmark, 2 options:
right click > bookmark
runs on Windows 2000 (I think) and over.
can play any media format
can add bookmarks ...
VLC supports this feature.
You do it by clicking Playback → Custom Bookmarks (or, just Ctrl+B) → Create, and VLC will create a bookmark at the current position (displayed in images below).
I've heard of some complains about it, but it's worth giving it a try.
How to do it (images):
To actually navigate to the bookmark, simply click on it from Playback → ...
My absolute favorite is SemanticScuttle here's why I think you'll like it to:
web based access
SemanticScuttle is primarily web based .
self hosted and can be run on any reasonable linux host. I'd be fine with something that uses a common database, and either runs its own server, or is in php. I don't really need it to run on shared hosting or ...
You can use Pine Bookmark Explorer:
can set keyboard shortcut (more info below)
can search bookmarks
uses whole window
more bookmark title/tile than URL
To set the keyboard shortcut, go to chrome://extensions/, go to the bottom of the page, and click Keyboard Shortcuts. Find 'Pine Bookmark Explorer', and type in your preferred shortcut.
Finally found some extensions which seems to do the right stuff:
Right Click Bookmark - When installing it asks for a folder to store the new bookmarks in, adds Add Bookmark to context menu, which opens a dialog window asking for bookmark title with a default of the link title
Contextmenu Bookmark Link – Adds a context menu Add Bookmark, which saves the ...
ScrapBook X is a powerful and improved fork of ScrapBook. Its source is released under the Mozilla Public License Version 2.0.
It DOES include a keyboard mapping feature for capturing the selection through a user customizable keyboard combination which is enabled through Tools->Add-ons->Scrapbook X->Preferences in Firefox.
Here are the features.
There are ...
When I read your requirements correctly, a combination of two Firefox addons could do the job:
Markdown Editor allows you to open/create, edit, and save Markdown documents – using a syntax you're already familiar with from Stack Exchange. This would include e.g. nested lists and hyperlinks:
Markdown Editor (source: Mozilla.org; click images for larger ...
Like many I've been searching for a bookmarks synchronization solution that is cross-browsers and cross-platforms for years. To my knowledge, all-in-one ready to use alternatives are but none. But once you accept that there's a solution.
A note on some Xmarks alternatives.
Sync2It BookmarkSync looks dead.
tidyfavorites is Windows only. So is Outertech's ...
I personally use Bookmark Search.
It isn't exactly what you wanted, but does what you want.
As you already know, typing into the omnibar finds bookmarks and history, so what this extension does is gives you an option to search only for bookmarks while in the omnibar.
You use it by:
typing bm (short for bookmark) in the omnibar
typing your ...
This extension is quite famous, it has even got a Wikipedia entry. The following description is from Firefox add-ons:
ScrapBook is a Firefox extension, which helps you to save Web pages
and easily manage collections. Key features are lightness, speed,
accuracy and multi-language support. Major features are:
Save Web page
Open/close bookmark panel: F12
Focus/unfocus bookmark panel: F6
Expand a node: Numpad +, →, Shift+Numpad 6
Collapse a node: Numpad -, ←, Shift+Numpad 4
Expand/collapse all child nodes: Numpad */Numpad /
Expand/collapse all bookmarks: Shift+Numpad */Shift+Numpad /
This isn't written in the document strangely.
Not only it support navigating ...
Not sure to what extent this will help but this post by Charles Leifer explains beautifully how one can build a bookmarking service with python and phantomjs. You can extract many of the feature to meet your desired preference.
The python script is fairly straightforward, consists of two views, one passes a list of bookmarks to a template for rendering, ...
I am in the same boat. I'm posting here to keep track of any updates.
A short term fix I've done is using the manual export bookmarks to HTML from the first computer, editing that HTML to only include the folder I want to sync, then importing to the second computer.
It not be a terrible process as long as you can find your "shared" folder in the ...
I would suggest Evernote Web Clipper.
Evernote Web Clipper is a simple extension for your web browser that lets you capture full-page articles, images, selected text, important emails, and any web page that inspires you. Save everything to Evernote and keep it forever. (Taken from this)
This extension is available for current modern browser, like Google ...

Although I accepted an XMarks answer, my searching for acceptable tool continues as XMarks license is too demanding. Why should I grant irrevocable license to XMarks to publish or publicly display my bookmarks, username and even voice? That's sick. It can create not only privacy, but also security issues - think of bookmarks to ...
I came across this software, Linkman, that is local only, and has several features that you're looking for. Alas, it's missing some features I'm looking for though.
I have not tried it out [yet], and I stumbled across your post looking to find a secure bookmark manager.
After some searching I found two alternate workarounds, which does have some of the functionality you are looking for.
This extension can select a block in a web page and then either open all the links or bookmark the links.
To get this to work do the following:
Install the LinkClump extension
Change configuration so that the action ...
I found exactly what I was looking for. It's called Beans Wishlist. It has almostevery single feature I mentioned including the ability to save products from websites and Android apps, so awesome! It doesn't currently let you put them into categories or subcategories, but I left feedback requesting that feature be added, so hopefully it will soon. Update: ...
chrome-pseudobookmark, For Chrome
I wrote this Chrome extension. It's very simple (especially the v1 release, only ~700 bytes) and easily customizable through the source code.
It creates an alternative bookmarking mechanism and is probably best used as a temporary holding space because it's faster to use than normal bookmarks.
is a Firefox plugin
changes called URLS on the fly from HTTP to HTTPS if possible
It does not convert the bookmarks - but as long as you don't want to export your bookmarks to another browser, it works fine.
IMHO, the plugin has become quite popular since the Let's encrypt initiative.
Firefox offers both features:
You can bookmark all tabs by right-clicking on the tab bar or a single tab. It will create a folder that contains bookmarks for all open tabs.
You can create multiple bookmarks for the same URL and place them in different folders. Each of these bookmarks can have its own name and description, but the bookmark’s tags and search ...
As far as I understand, https://pinboard.in might be an answer to your needs.
Quoting from the main page (emphasis mine, with relation to your requested features):
Pinboard is a fast, no-nonsense bookmarking site for people who value privacy and speed.
Pinboard lets you bookmark from any browser, connect up to three Twitter accounts (and ...
Since I'm not seeing any other answers, I'll answer my own question in case anyone else is looking for the same thing I was.
A colleague recommended Everhelper's Eversync to me. It seems to behave pretty much the same way XMarks did; it keeps my existing bookmarks in sync across browsers and machines without requiring me to visit a website to view or edit ...
