Take LinkStash and your bookmarks with you on a portable device such as a USB pen drive.
If certain websites look best with a specific browser you can configure a bookmark to open with a specific browser.
LinkStash has a large bookmark notes text box specifically for writing long comments.
Tag (a tag is a relevant keyword associated with a bookmark) bookmarks to categorize them and later search for bookmarks by their tag.
If you find that you often do the same searches over and over again then you can save the search criteria. With a couple of clicks you can activate any saved search instantly.
If your bookmarks contain sensitive information LinkStash can encrypt the bookmark file with strong encryption. This works especially well if you carry the bookmarks on a USB pen drive, if it's lost you can be assured nobody will be able to view your bookmarks without knowing the master password.
All bookmarks are kept together in one single file, easily fitted on the average floppy diskette. This means your bookmarks are totally portable and can be taken to and from work, and easily synchronized between computers.
Import your current bookmarks/favorites from all the recent versions of Internet Explorer, Opera and Netscape.
Organize your bookmarks easily and efficiently using drag and drop, a configurable keystroke or the handy toolbar buttons in LinkStash or on the Internet Explorer toolbar. Sort on any column header.

Make those important bookmarks stand out. Using LinkStash highlights you can set visual traits such as background colour and font style for each bookmark. You can do the same for folders too.
LinkStash uses far less disk space to store your bookmarks than IE (Internet Explorer). This is because IE stores each bookmark as a separate file, which means wasted space because each bookmark will be at least the size of one cluster, 4KB for example (as much as 32KB for each one in Windows 95!) Here's a typical example: for 531 bookmarks, IE uses a minimum of 2.14MB storage space, while LinkStash uses just 15KB.
