Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Firefox, and other browsers, allow you to add bookmark rss feeds (live bookmarks). Is there a way to create a communal feed (via a wiki, for example) which users can add bookmarks to. Seems like this would be handy for a group of users who regular visit many of the same sites.

The basic idea is to allow a user to open his/her browser, and have access to a group of bookmarks (eg: "Customer homepages") that is regularly updated by the members of his/her group.

I'd be interested in a solution on any major server OS.

Firefox's live bookmarks feature is a simple RSS feed reader under the covers (same with the IE flavor). You could easily set this up with wordpress or any other blog software that supports multiple users.

Not exactly a Wiki server, but an alternative solution: you could use the network feature of the delicious social bookmarking service:

What is my Network, and how do I use it?

Your network connects you to other Delicious users: friends, family, coworkers, even new people you run across while exploring Delicious. It is a "people aggregator", collecting your favorite users' latest bookmarks in one place for you to view and enjoy. You can view and manage your network by going to your Network.

There a powerful tools, like the add-on for Firefox, an API and RSS feeds.

xmarks is a browser plugin that will synchronize bookmarks between browsers on different machines. Just share the username and password with whoever you want to synchronize with.
