    If the bookmarks are properly organized into a rich, hierarchical directory structure, it can become indefinitely large with no problem.

    Internet Explorer has a bug in the “Add to Favorites” function that makes it expand the entire structure, thus preventing its use, but one can work around that: to add a favorite, go to the Start menu, right-click “Favorites”, select “Open”, navigate through the directory structure expanding only relevant directories, and adding directories as appropriate. Then, mouse-drag the icon from the address bar into the appropriate directory. One can similarly rearrange existing entries when one directory becomes too large.

    This bug does not impair the use of a rich directory structure; it only necessitates the above procedure when adding a favorite.

    If you use different Web browsers for different purposes, the above procedure is handy because it forces them to use the same Favorites list. If you open a Favorite from the Start menu, it will open in whatever is your default browser at that time, or you can mouse-drag it into whichever browser you prefer for that site.

    For example, Internet Explorer performs terribly on, but only it supports ActiveX.

    I occasionally do this. It amazes me how many bookmarks I have accumulated that are totally not needed.

    I generally go over my bookmarks too. But I use Mozilla for my browser. Simple to use and no popups.
