Manually remove all the duplicate bookmarks in Firefox

I was trying to install the duplicate Bookmark remover for the Firefox but for some reasons, was not able to install it. That apart, the point is that I was trying to get a program to do this for me rather than a plugin. So, after some search, finally I found here. This is a ruby script. The script requires ruby gems-json for doing this.

The idea is very simple. Export the bookmarks in json format.

Run the script with ruby on your bookmarks. This will create a new file.

Use the restore feature of the bookmarks to restore the newly created bookmarks file, which ofcourse should not have any duplicates. 🙂

Google+ – way to go for experinmenting.

Finally I got a invitations and was able to get into the Google+ today. Having been trying to do this for last couple of days, was quite anxious on how it is and how it fairs against Facebook and twitter.

First, heres a first look of the account:

Most noticable thing, as soon as you login is that all your contacts from google aare directly visible in your account and you can directly put them in any of the circles that you like. Picasaweb photos can be imported.


Will update more shortly, after I have experimented a little more on this.
