I know this thread has sort of died out, but you reminded me of it and
an idea I had... 

most of the browsers use some sort of *ml to store the bookmarks. Why
not make a local static page with html links to the other browser's
bookmark files. Then you can just point your browser to that page and
get the contents of all the different bookmark files. And when you
bookmark something in one browser it will be placed in its own
bookmark file, but be accessible from the others with ease. 

so for example on my system I could have a page in my home called
bookmarks.html with:

<a href="file:///home/andrew/.dillo/blah-blah-blah>dillo bookmarks</a>

etc etc.

If I actually knew how to write webpages, I could probably figure out
how to just source those files and place their contents on one page,
minimizing the required clicks to get to things.
