You'd be surprised at how stylish they can be, and we're not talking tassels. Shop on for our favorite picks. Ready? On your (book)mark, get set, go!
So if you've totally had it with your current browser (I'm talking about you, Firefox), but are afraid to separate due to your intricate organization of your bookmarks, don't be.

File this one under "awesome tools to help you finish your term paper," especially if there is heavy research involved. The extension is called Zotero, and it's too bad I didn't have this back when I was in school, since it would have made my life so much easier!
Zotero works on your Firefox browser to help you organize and keep track of your links, notes, and photos that you need to finish up your research. But unlike other bookmarking extensions, Zotero allows you to take additional notes, tag, and organize your collection of mind blowing data right on the web page you're checking out. And although it's super handy to use while surfing the Internet for facts, you can also use Zotero offline if you're cruising through Word Docs or eBooks that you have stashed away on your hard drive.

Oh Delicious, I almost (I said almost) forgot about you, and then you go and do something brilliant — you get a very much needed makeover! I was seriously considering walking away from all of my favorite bookmarks, or at least moving them to a much more user-friendly site, but alas, you pull though with a fresh new name (minus all the . and . 's), a slick new UI and a much faster search engine — nice work! And the best part about the new look? The big and beautiful notes fields that you can either change to reveal more bookmark info or compact their display with a single click on the Tag Bar!
You know me, I love to share tips, tricks, downloads, and news all day long, every day of the week, 24/7. I'm sharing right now as I type! You might even consider it an obsession.
So knowing that I could make it easier on myself when I want to submit links to my bookmarking or sharing sites like Digg, Reddit, and Twitter by using Shareaholic — an award winning Firefox add-on that works like a hub for all my social networking and bookmarking services. It sends out my favorite links in one shot without me having to copy or paste a thing.
Once you download Shareaholic, a green button appears on your browser, letting you customize which sites you want to send links to. When you come to a webpage you think is worthy, just click the green share button, select your service (i.e., StumbleUpon) and your link is copied and sent to the site for you, ready to submit. How easy is that?
I don't know how important your del.icio.us bookmarks are to you, but mine act as my personal yellow pages — basically a huge reference area for all my important web links.
Now I can get these great sites via my cell phone with a free service called Mobilicio.us. With Mobilicio.us I can browse through all of my bookmarks right from the convenience of my cell phone's browser.

I am a Van's Waffle lover so thought it was great to see that Hmorris bookmarked some wheat free waffles and put them in the Sexy & Gluten Free group. If you have issues with gluten this could be a great group for you.
