Help test RC1 of the new Bookmarks release! (With Full text archiving and searching)

Hello there,

if you have tested this for some time and found no problems, please let me know about that, too :smiley:

This is no test or bug report, but I wanted to say Thank You for keeping up the good work on Bookmarks and the Floccus Browser extension, :+1:

While I do not use the UX of the Bookmarks app a lot, matter of fact I don’t even know how it looks exactly in it’s current state :wink: I do use the Bookmarks app on a daily basis in combination with the Floccus browser addon, to sync my bookmarks over all my machines and it has been working without any problems for quiet some time now. It has thus become another important component to me in order to be independent of 3rd party cloud providers. :slight_smile:
