@amit Lately I collected some (older) articles about use of PinoBoard for my wife who is interested in this service:

@mdhughes what pushed me over the edge was how often Firefox would just lose the ability to read its bookmarks, and I'd have to dig out a backup, restore, and then remember what the heck I was looking for in the first place.
If something's important, the tab stays open until I've done something with it. Otherwise it's a visit to my failing memory or DDG to get it back :P
My bookmarks are a mess, but as I find stuff I want to follow up on, or fill up a window with tabs, I put it in rough categories or folders of a single "story". Then when I'm looking for something to read, I dig thru them.
As I look at the hundreds of links bookmarked over the years of browsing, I am stunned how can this be useful to anyone. It’s a mess - broken links, links relevant only for that time, useless user guides, pointless references. There’s hardly anything useful in here.
