Interesting.   I wrote a C++ program to parse the file into web pages,
one per folder with all the sub links.   I use that a lot too when on
the road because it's uploaded to my server.

Mine is maybe 700 entries, many of them duplicates.  I once applied a 'remove dead links' thing to it.  It churned for a long time and found a few hundred.  Unfortunately it couldn't save them.  Stupid program. Easy to copy to new devices, though.

Chrome is easier to parse but I found a python script on the web to
convert the bookmarks.html from FF to a similar Chrome bookmarks file.
So my code works for both browsers.   I used to be a heavy Chrome user
and if FF keeps going south as I've been reading, I may go back.   I
just like the appearance a userChrome.css can do to FF.

I'd like Chrome a lot better if I could have a permanent vertical tab bar like FF has.  I don't see how people can live with 20 or 30 tabs on a horizontal bar.  I don't see how people can use the standard output of 'ls' either.  WE READ LISTS VERTICALLY, at least that's how humans do it!

I live with about 6 folders on my tab bar and under each is about 20 folders tops. That's 120 folders, Maybe max. I don't find it hard. If I need software it's the Software folder on the bar. If I need shopping it's the shopping folder, or travel folder etc. Those aren't right but you get the idea.

I made an alias 'll' for 'ls -al'
I've been doing that since the 70's on SCO Unix.
