I saw that GNOME Web supports synchronization of bookmarks, passwords, etc. from Firefox and even supports self hosted sync servers so I wanted to try it out as an alternative browser. But once I synchronized I realized that the bookmarks UI of GNOME Web is terrible. There is no hierarchy, just a flat super long list of all the bookmarks.

There is a bug report on it https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/epiphany/-/issues/638 and it seems it will not be changed because the decided not to have folders but instead tags which doesn't really synchronize well because of that. Only way for me would be to drop browser internal bookmarks but hm, I'm not sure I'm ready for that. And moving to tags ... I tried it back in the day with deli.cio.us and I ended having more tags than bookmarks, it's not for me.
