Have a look at the following:

- http://sourceforge.net/projects/bookmarksync (one among many similar
solutions for synchronisation)

- If you use the same browser in different locations, then consider just
remotely logging in from one computer to another. This enables you toretain
your profile in a single place

- Put, centralise, and manage your bookmarks online. Yahoo provide such a
service. http://del.icio.us likewise, but it's called social bookmarks. I
even offer that type of service on my domain <
http://www.schestowitz.com/Bookmarks/social_bookmark/ >, so feel free to
register and manage it all there. Make use of bookmarklets [1].

-Lastly, there is the option of exporting all your bookmarks periodically,
uploading them to some Web space and then accessing them from there.

Hope it helps,
