Hi Jack, 
Thanks for your previous and this feedback !
Discussions like these are eye-openers for possibly better
solutions !! ;-)
I really can recommend you swapping to Foxmarks !!! ;-D

Indeed there are some aspects / points one has to consider or watch:

1) With setting up your Foxmarks account you are asked to setup on
Foxmarks's homepage or anywhere else, i.e. your own website's FTP !?

I didn't really notice this and too wasn't really sure how to setup to
be pointed to my FTP and 
so its on now.

2) Security aspects:
If one uses its personal Foxmarks on a strange system, i.e. from your
friend or relative, and you get to to call your
Bookmarks ...
... some browse and download history plus some cookies are stored on
that strange system !!!

So avoid any delicate transaction then !? ;-)

To be prepared best - Read and study:

Enjoy and have a nice weekend, 
cheers svobi
