    I am sure hoping this enhancement works its way into the Google TV quickly, all of those sites I have bookmarked from your frequent posts to the Project Free TV thread have become unwieldy and I don't think I even bookmark 10% of them, only the ones I plan to use often. I didn't plan that very well with my first Revue and don't really know how to manage bookmarks well with the current product. When I access Bookmarks, I don't always recall what it was about that site I liked and I don't remember which site had something specific I wanted to do or try out.

    Chris have you tried symbaloo.com for your bookmarks? It's a free bookmark service with many features. I've been using it for several months now and like it very much. I have it set as my homepage on Google TV.
