I do this. I got it from vimb, and hacked it into surf when I switched. I have a bash script that I use to do basic out-of-browser operations: add, search, remove dupes, etc. And hot keys in surf to add, search.

It’s a plain text file (tsv, actually), one link per line, a name, and then space-separated tags. No hierarchy, and I can search by tag, name, or URL. It’s like gmail. Plus, I can open the file with vim - practically, not the faux “human-readable” of XML.

The only problem is, I’m so loath to give up this most pragmatic of formats that I’m effectively stuck in surf or vimb. I actively hate the Firefox bookmark format.
