The problem with having more than two popular web browsers competing against each other, is that it’s tricky trying to establish which browser you’d prefer to use on a daily basis. There are various reasons for this – you may prefer to use Opera at home, but can only use Internet Explorer at work. Alternatively, you may prefer to use Opera for most browsing, but find that it doesn’t work with your companies’ CMS or you’re accessing your online bank account.
This means that sharing bookmarks between browsers is difficult. Browse the web with Opera and add a bookmark and you’ll find that this won’t appear in Firefox. You can easily use an application such as Google’s Browser Synchronisation tool to sync your Firefox bookmarks. You can share your Opera bookmarks through MyOpera or oSync. However, there is no tool (that we know of – let us know if we’re wrong) that will enable you to synchronise bookmarks between different browsers.
That’s why a tool such as StorURL could become useful. Instead of synchronising bookmarks across browsers, you simply add your bookmarks to this one application and then launch a web URL in the browser of your choice. StorURL will import your existing bookmarks from all your current web browsers, to get you started.
