Liboom is a Live Bookmarks Manager. The idea is to keep the addresses of your favorite sites stored on a web server, so they are available anywhere. Liboom saves the bookmarks in RSS files so they can be used with Mozilla Firefox's Live Bookmarks feature. Online storage comes in handy when you use Firefox on several computers (ex: home, office...).

Key benefits:

  • Access your bookmarks from anywhere.
    Your different copies of Firefox are always in sync. Bookmarks integrate smoothly into Firefox's interface.
  • Fast and effective.
    The bookmarks are stored in static RSS files, so no processing is required when they are loaded into Firefox.
  • No Firefox extension needed.
    Liboom makes use of Live Bookmarks, a built-in Firefox feature.
  • No database required.
    Again, data is stored in RSS files. You only have to make sure that PHP scripts are allowed to write into files.
  • Simple installation.
    Unzip. Upload. VoilĂ .

How to use Liboom

Once you have understood what the purpose of Liboom is, using it is pretty straightforward.

On the first page, click on the New file link to create a new RSS file.

In the New file page, type in a file name and then enter the bookmarks below. Click the Save link, the new file is created.

You can now see it in the main page. Use the icon on the right to add this file as a Live Bookmark in Firefox. Use the Edit link to add, change or remove bookmarks from it.


Liboom has been created to be used with Firefox, but it can be used with any browser supporting Live Bookmarks.

If you lose data by accident, you can recover the last saved version of your file in the backups directory. To access it, replace feeds by backups in your file's URL.

Awards / Reviews

"So, Liboom-enabled bookmarks combine the "everywhere-ness" of an online solution, and the comfort of an in-browser one. Liboom's attractive style and extremely simple controls make it "useful from the box", you have no learning period, just use it!"
