By relevance??  Of the 12 sites listed there right now, 10 are just
uncategorized bookmarks that I haven't visited in months at least.
The top two are AMONG the many more than 2 sites I've visited since
getting ff3 about 10 days ago.  And the sites listed have little in
common, so relevance to what, I have to wonder.
