Linux "For a fairly scruffy looking guy, I have a surprisingly healthy approach to organising my files. However, I'm constantly pushing up against the limitations of a system that is based around directories. I'm convinced that Linux needs to make greater use of tagging, but I'm also beginning to wonder if desktop Linux could abandon the hierarchical directory structure entirely."

Organise your bookmarks exactly the same way as before, using folders.

Then, just add tags to your bookmarks for "categories" and keywords.

When you want to find a bookmark, you can use the menu the same as always to browse through your folders.

Or, you can just start typing a keyword into the addressbar, and Firefox will scan your tags and list out your bookmarks that match.

Think of tags as a supplement to folders, not a replacement.
