I'm not even sure if it's right for Nautilus and something like Galeon
or Mozilla to have the same set of bookmarks. For instance, it's
pretty useful for me to bookmark local directories I visit often in
Nautilus, but this bookmark would be just noise in a program I use
only as a web browser. Likewise I may want to bookmark my favorite ftp
sites or smb shares in Nautilus, and these bookmarks would be less
useful in a pure web browser.

Conversely, since I use Nautilus less for web browsing than other
programs, bookmarks for all my favorite web sites may or may not be
useful. Certainly anything with Flash animations or heavy use of
JavaScript wouldn't be.
