I use lynx and specify one of its bookmark pages for such inter-browser
bookmarks.  Use lynx to browse to a browser's bookmark file, then save
that page to the appropriate lynx bookmark.  Ditto for all other browser
bookmark files.  On each browser, I have a prominent bookmark pointing
to my lynx bookmark files (I have several).  No editing involved.
