Talk:Bookmarks Use Cases
Smart Folders – Bookmark Rating
It could be useful to bookmark power users also to have a kind of rating system like in the Music Libraries of Winamp or iTunes. By reaching 30, 50 or 100 bookmarks in a folder, where you collecting all pages on a certain topic, not only the good and useful but also the bad and deterrent, a rating system might be helpful.
- I love the idea of having a rating system that could be integrated into the Smart Folders - Dria 09:46, 7 Jul 2005 (PDT)
Another nice feature would be to add inline editing of bookmark items. Once again I have a library-interface like in iTunes in mind: You are opening up Bookmarks Manager and on the left you have a folders list on the right you have kind of a details-view. You click on the row and next on the bookmark item you want to edit.
You don't have to select the row, right click, go to Properties and then jump to the input field you'd like to edit.
--> Item editing within two clicks!
Two things: Is something like that possible within XUL, and is this an improvement to usability. Are there higher potentialities of data loss through unexperienced users?

Because I love idea of virtual folders, I'd like to have them in Bookmarks. Things like "5 most often visited webpages", "10 last visited sites in *.pl" would be great.
a bit of A.I.
It was proposed long ago, but we could add a bit of A.I. like ability to remove dead bookmarks, update those which are redirecting, and category suggest basing on Bayseian filter (for example while adding bookmark the dialog could suggest - basing on website content+bayesian that this kind of pages user usually holds in "News" category).

re: virtual folders or lists
I love this idea! Feedreader has something like this (preset, I think). User-configurable is the way to go.
Sorry for burying this, but please enable search in the menu Bookmarks drop-down also and in the bookmark manager for managing more than one folder at a time. Also, non-permanent sorts for management purposes, as well as just looking for bookmarks might be useful.
I don't use the sidepanel. I might, if it was auto-hide like in Windows toolbars.
This page's last (previous mine now) edits were mid2005, so these pages get lost :-( Nevertheless, googling implies some people have pursued your concept. Mozilla auto-hide ~sidepanel and maybe include terms from these: Firefox_Chrome_URLs mozine Chrome_URLs mozine --Spbt 15:55, 1 July 2007 (PDT)
