Floccus: A Cross-browser bookmarking Sync tool

If you are a daily user of the internet, or your work requires a lot of searches, then you properly have hundreds maybe thousands of bookmarks on your browsers.

Maybe you are on an active education workflow, or a self-education path, so you are searching, collecting links and resources for your research to review later.

It is not an easy walk in the park, especially if you are using different multiple browsers, and or computers (Like I do), then most likely, you have another problem: bookmarks everywhere.

Our pick for today will help you to resolve this issue. Meet Floccus.

Nextcloud Bookmarks integration

I use Nextcloud on a regular basis, and primarily to keep a record of my learning process which includes recording bookmarks.

Floccus supports Nextcloud bookmark sync, but it does not accept non-HTTP URLs, which was a bust.

However, Floccus with WebDAV and Google Drive supports other bookmarks like http(s):, ftp:, data:, and javascript:.
