I save all my useful URLs in the normal default 'bookmark' folder of my web browser. However, I use an addition software called 'Blue Organizer' and 'Blue Mark' (which are free add on software from Mozilla Firefox) to get more information about the links that I have saved.
The websites that I save in my bookmarks are always in folders that I name appropriately (a practice that I have al
ways done) and I generally leave all the current folders open so that I can always see the bookmarks. (See pic below)
