okay i have a question. i'm not sure if you can even do this in php or if you have to do it with javascript or something.

is there a way to get a list of the user's bookmarks/favorites links from their browser and put them into an array or something? well, i know there is a way to do this, but i'm not sure how to go about doing this or with what language. can anybody point me in the right direction?
Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

Unfortunately you would need a client side tool, like an ActiveX tool or something that downloads when you open the page.. Which would only work on Windows with IE... it definately can't be done with php.. since PHP is server side processing, not client side.

Good luck.
