P.S. Wofe today required me to assist in "sorting out her (Opera
She has been collecting bookmarks for at least 15 years in an entirely
random manner, and seems to have multiple duplicates in a host of folders.
She also has the knack of accidentally moving folders into other folders
without either meaning to or noticing that she has done so.
Would it be too terrible of me to hard delete the lot, and suggest she
One of the few things I like about the current travesty called Opera is the
ability to search bookmarks. Like your wofe, I have a tendency to drag
folders into other folders - the ability to search one or all folders
within the browser itself, where you can easily check them if it's not
obvious where they should be and rename if it took 3 tries to find the one
you want, is useful.
I use Firefox, which many seem to say is the best. Our desktop PC
is set up with Windows logins for us both, but I am told that,
because that would take finite time to switch over, practically
everything is done on my login.
My preferred way of working is to have a few tabs open, extra
ones appearing if I am doing some particular research, but
relying upon Firefox's ability to quickly offer me a previous
website from bookmarks or history.
BOFE works differently - she likes lots of tabs, and leaves them
there for months. Currently there appear to be 271.
I have an add-on which grab a list and paste them wherever you
want (Excel table) as a precaution, and another which will bring
them back if Firefox forgets after a crash. Perhaps something
like that would give Sam some protection if you actually go for
the No-Deal option. ;-)
There used to be the facility to group tabs, so I could choose to
see only mine, but some upgrade stopped that working, so we can't
really tidy thing up.
I have briefly looked at other browsers, so that I could play on
my own, but so far nothing has felt right.
