    This looks like a great extension. My bookmarks are pretty organized, but about once a month I do a major reorganization and I'm sure I end up with duplicates.

    I store most things in Pinboard. But I often forget to check there first before I bookmark something locally. Does anyone know of a way to automatically check pinboard before I bookmark something in Chrome?

    Too bad there's not a Firefox version! The only similar add-on I've found is Bookmark Duplicate Detector, but that only works for NEW bookmarks that you've already saved.

      I'm wondering, what if we just backup the bookmarks from Firefox to Chrome then run the SuperSorter then import the bookmarks back to Firefox? That would take a bit but a lot easier than manually deleting and merging as I've been doing.

        I think LaDonna's idea sounds great, especially if you have Chrome installed already.
