Forum Question: How To Store Web Bookmarks Independent From Any Browser?

I would like to get some feedback on a good application that will store my Web bookmarks and is not tied specifiCally with a certain Web browser. This would allow me to use whatever browser I choose and still be able to access my bookmark links from a centralized location.

    I would use a web-based service for that. Then it is not only independent of a browser, but independent of your computer too. I know Delicious.com used to rule this space, but now there are many players. You can also use Google, Yahoo and other services to store links.

    I use Dropbox to store my bookmarks. This enables me not only to easily store my bookmarks in “the cloud” but also to simultaneously store them on a local folder on my Mac. There are many other alternatives, of course, but the Dropbox method is working great so far.

    X Marks, but I am intrigued by Webbla, a visual bookmarking system. This seems intuitive and potentially quicker. Some bugs need to be ironed out.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Delicious.com is more of a social sharing site for Web links. X-Marks seems to be a better option for me, but, it does not support Opera. Actually, I have noticed this with a lot of other apps and plug-ins as well. Unfortunately, I have been using Opera as my main Web browser for a while now and it contains the bookmarks I want to keep. I have not found a good way to export them either. I may have to resort to manually entering them in X-Marks one by one. Can you think of a better way to export them?
