Do you know how I can share my Internet bookmarks between my browser
at work and my browser at home? My bookmark lists are totally
different at each place! Thanks a lot.

Hello a_olphert65,

Would a web service like or Simpy work for you as answer
to your question? You upload your bookmarks and then you can come back
to them later on the Internet.

Another solution would be for you to save your bookmarks as an html
file. If you want instructions on how to do that, I could provide them
for you.

Hello!  Maybe those sites would work.  I'll give them a try.  How
would saving my bookmarks as an html file help?  I don't have a web
page.  Thanks a lot.

Hello a_olphert65,

You could save them as an html file and then save it or email it to
yourself, then you'd have your bookmarks on your other computer. Would
you like me to give you details for this and also post the above sites
as the answer?

Another option is to make use of the services offered by many of top
tier portal sites.

For instance, Yahoo lets you store bookmarks in your personal My Yahoo page:

which you can then access from not just your own computers, but from
any computer in the world (as long as it has internet access).

Not terribly different from and the like, but just another
option to be aware of, especially if you already have a My Yahoo
account, or something similar.

Thanks everyone. seems to work pretty well, although it's
a little bit clunky to have to go to a web page to find a bookmark. 
I'm not interested in emailing myself everyday, though.  I guess I was
hoping there was some way to get my bookmarks to stay "in synch" at
home and at work.  If not, then that's ok!  Thanks again.

Hello and thank you for your question.

Not because it's a Google product, but based on my experience,
Google's Bookmarks service should be just what you need.  [Google
Answers Researchers are independent contractors, by the way, so my
answer is not coming from the great Google anyway.]
Create bookmarks you can access anywhere
Bookmark your favorite websites and add labels and notes to them. Your
labels and notes are searchable later, and you can access your
bookmarks from any computer by signing in.

It's easiest if you first install the Google Toolbar
because that puts a 'bookmarks' button right on the Toolbar

Bookmarks Help page.
Can I import my "Favorites" from Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) into Google? 
Yes. To import your "Favorites," just follow these steps:
1. Sign in to your Google Account via the "Sign in" link on the Google
homepage or via the Google Toolbar.
2. Click on the star on your Bookmarks page, or click on the
"Bookmarks" button on the Google Toolbar.
3. Select "Import IE Favorites" at the bottom of the drop-down menu.
4. Select and edit the bookmarks you want to import. 

So assuming you want to merge your work and home bookmarks and keep
them synched from now on, all you need to do is import your IE
favorites at home and at work, and in the future save new bookmarks
via the Google Bookmarks button.

Thanks again for letting us help.  Please give it a try, and let me
know how it goes.
