Mesh Your Bookmarks!

Description

One of the most useful things you can do with Live Mesh, beyond just syncing files and folders, is syncing your bookmarks. This is as simple as right-clicking on your Favorites folder and adding it to the Mesh. (Doug has more detailed instructions on this here). When you do this on all your machines, you’ll end up with a merged directory of all your Favorites so you can manage your bookmarks from in one location, no matter how many machines you have. How handy is that? You can even access them from any other computer that has internet access just by logging into your Live Desktop. And don’t forget that Live Mesh lets you invite others to share a folder, so, if you wanted to share your bookmarks, for example, with a team at work so everyone could contribute, you could that, too.

    Isn't this what delicios and diigo do?  I like the idea - but why bookmarks?

    I have been using Mesh for a couple of months and really love it.  The thing is so seamless - it is just cool.  But the idea of even using your "favorites" in a browser anymore is almost silly.

    Personally, I use Furl a lot, but options are always good.

    For me this has been probably my most used implementation of Live Mesh so far, I have been able to set it for my entire family so everybody's notebooks play nice with the family desktop back home, very very useful as the learning curve for them is zero.


    (Although with my fathers decision to buy a Mac 3 days ago I am now waiting on a solution for the cross platform synchronization I will inevitably desire)
