Description

Tor Browser Bundle users suffer from a bit of a bootstrapping issue. Local bookmarks are a privacy risk for those who must worry about having hardware stolen or confiscated. The Tor community has answered that problem with OnionBookmark (http://x7yxqg5v4j6yzhti.onion/). With OnionBookmark, it is very easy to store a set of bookmarks inside of the onion rather than inside of one's machine.

Getting to OnionBookmark from a fresh installation of Tor or Tor Browser Bundle is rather difficult as hidden services don't exactly have memorable URI's.

I would like to see OnionBookmark included with the default bookmarks in Tor Browser Bundle to use as an effective way to reach other hidden services inside of the .onion.

Who runs that HS? What do They do with the bookmarks people store on Their service? Why should we encourage Tor users to use Their service?

Hi,
I'm the admin of that site.
I started it some time ago to help people with the issue that the user is posting.

I'm unsure about what you are referring to when you ask "what they do with bookmarks people store on their service.", but I do not 'do' anything at all.
It's a secure place to store your bookmarks, and you can freely choose if they are going to be private only (not viewable by others) or if it's locked away with your account.

I provide this service solely for the interest of doing something for the users of tor.

Seems sketchy... Why do we need this in TBB again?

We don't. We shouldn't be encouraging sites that store user information, especially sites that we do not run ourselves. People can use Firefox sync if they feel it is safe.
