Quick FAQ

Why? isn't there fuction of this thats part of every browser?
Yes, all major browsers have this functionality, but:
  1. You are stuck with one computer at time, bookmarks you make in your work computer aren't transfered to your home pc, imagine making bookmarks in internet café
  2. I'm planing some neat fuctionality not found in browsers.
  3. No need to wory about them if reinstaling system or if you often switch different systems.
Ehm. There are sites that offer this as free service.
Yeah. But you should be concerned about this:
  1. Privacy - some of your bookmarks may be sesitive (for exapmle semi-secret project you are working at, or pr0n archives you accidentaly found.), and even if you are not secret agent, you surely dont want someome gathering informations about you. Also there will be option to make some of your link public and some private or even to allow your friends to log-in and see some of your semi-secret links
  2. Backuping - those services can be shut-down in minute without notification. And they usually dont have bacup options.
Fine, but is this necesary? I'm having my linksite in plain html and im happy with it.
It might work for you, but mysql/php hosting is really accessible, and trouble of retrieving your links page from ftp/editing it/uploading back is no match to comfort of simply log-in, add, log-out.
