Gotcha of the Day: Bulk Deleting Bookmarks

I've been meaning to clean out my bookmarks, but everytime I bring up the Firefox bookmark manager I'm reminded of why I don't bother: deleting items in bulk is a pain (actually, it's not a pain - it just doesn't appear possible).

There's probably a Firefox plugin to allow for bulk deletion, but I never stay on task with this problem long enough to search for it.

The other day I was on my netbook, and Google Chrome when I realized that its bookmark manager does indeed offer bulk deletion. It works just like you'd expect:

click, hold down shift, click somewhere else, hit delete.

Couldn't have been easier.

And, thanks to xmarks the changes I make in Chrome are automatically sync'ed up with Firefox.

As quick and dirty solutions go, I think this one is a winner.
