Take your bookmarks with you

In an ideal world everyone would work from their own computer, all the time, and not have to share resources with colleagues, family, or friends. But not everyone has access to their own computer, and instead share a PC at work or log on at university, the local library or Internet cafe. If you have to search or surf the Web, and keep tabs of your favourite sites, you know that bookmarking Web sites can be a chore if you share or change PCs.
Two young NSW university students, and avid Web surfers have tackled the issue, and launched a free Web site that lets you access your bookmarks -- wherever you may be. While bookmarks are usually stored on a user's browser, the site BookmarkBox, is an online server where users can store and access their bookmarks.
The free site ensures user security with password protection, and is aimed at people who use a PC both at work and home, students who search at Internet cafes and people conducting lengthy research online. Current bookmarks can be imported and a free utility assists Internet Explorer Favorites to be converted.
