    1024

    I got quite a few I check reguraly, most of em though I use for references. Actually, I've been meaning to update my bookmarks, add new ones, and sort em all. Will get around to it someday.

    I tend to be quite organized with my bookmarks, but I still have a lot. I wish Del.irio.us would make an import feature like Del.icio.us has.

    I bookmark sites like a little thing possessed. Far too many to count and given my appalling mathematical ability, I doubt I would be able to count that high anyway.

    Maybe there's a bash script that could do it for me . . . . .

    I voted alot. I have 20, all on the toolbar.
    I just use the pic that comes with most bookmarks to identify the site.

    First, you need your bookmarks.html file. Either locate it within ~/.mozilla , or you can export your bookmarks to an html file. Then run a command like this:

    egrep -c "<[aA] [hH][rR][eE][fF]=" bookmarks.html

    The number is prints will be the number of bookmarks you have. In my earlier post my grep command was a little different, but this one should be more reliable.
