Bookie is a project born of an itch to make collaborative bookmarking aYou can read what Bookie is <a href="purpose.html">here</a>, but here's the
reality.  It was partly conceived out of <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/blue-sky/ui/199805/bookmarks.html">good bookmarking</a> and <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/blue-sky/misc/199805/collaborative-bookmark-index.html">collaborative bookmark indexing</a>.  long and short of it:

 Bookie is an application which keeps all your bookmarks on a

<h2>Client</h2><p>Mozilla client is still very rudimentary, but it does do XML-RPC queries.
 If you enjoy pain or would like to help, then you can pick up the code from
 clients/mozilla/extensions/bookie/resources (I know it's a long URL, I'm
 trying to keep it synced with the mozilla codebase) and copy the directories
 into your dist/bin/chrome/bookie directory.  I will see if I can wrap it
 into an XPInstall script for easier access.  Thanks to Aaron Andersen for
 the cool <a href="http://www.xulplanet.com/tutorials/xulapp/">tutorial</a>.

 makefile.win"</code> should take care of the problem.
