Currently use Opera for my bookmarks, which is a nice simple to use system, and the system allows you to have your bookmarks remain open in the left hand side of the screen. It also saved all the fav icons so you could see visually  what website the bookmarks were for. This system also synced. However they have now updated Opera so it no longer has this feature, and their bookmark system now open in a full screen, which I don't want. I have tried firefox and chromes system, but neither have the functions on operas system. ALso using Apples bookmark syncing system, but it has now created hundred of duplicate links for some reason.  Wondering what other people use for managing their bookmarks?

Why not just go back to the older version you preferred? 

 

 

 

I use Google Chrome, bookmarks saved on my Google account.

Thank, I am using it now, but many website no longer work properly in the old version of opera. So it is a pain to open up another browser for the website. I may look into chrome a bit more, although apples booking system seems to have corrupted it, producing multiple copies of the same bookmark. Also it doesn't look like you can open bookmarks on one side of the browser, and have websites in the main window, it also looks to be full screen to manage bookmarks.

Is what I use.  I got in before it turned to a yearly subscription.  A most excellent service, clients for most phones etc.

I'm using mainly Firefox with its sync. I think my Chrome is doing likewise. I'm trying out Edge regularly.

 

To transfer bookmarks initially you can use iCloud. Then turn iCloud bookmark sync off and use the browser's own. If you leave iCloud bookmark sync turned on plus have multiple browsers or devices and their sync turned on, bookmarks will duplicate like a clonewars factory gone mad.

I second Chrome, sync it to the cloud and all my bookmarks sync to my home computer, phone, tablet and work computer. Chrome is handy as its on pretty much all devices.

I pay for Lastpass which includes XSync which is handy - works with any browser via plug-in.

You can't natively no, Google expressly do not want this.
