    I haven't seen this come up, but if it has, my apologies.

    I recently started eschewing the Web Browser app and the Bookmarks function in favor of Adding a shortcut to the launcher. I was only using the browser for bookmarks, otherwise I'd just use Universal Search. I noticed that adding pages to the launcher causes them to appear in the Universal Search, while Bookmarks don't. This also allowed me to free up a spot on my quicklaunch bar (for Angry Birds). Using the 5x5 icons also means I get more 'bookmarks' per view in the launcher.

    I'm wondering if anyone else has made a similar switch and if they've found any disadvantages.

    I'm sure it's more or less a personal preference, but I would be a little concerned that my launcher would be cluttered up with too many bookmarks.

    I've thought about adding a launcher page just for bookmarks (I'm using 9 right now so there's room for one more), but haven't taken the time to try it yet.

    I've done this for awhile now, it's the only way I've found to organize "bookmarks" in a sensible manner.
    Hmmm?.....It's a Palm Pre, here, let me show you something cool...;-)

    I haven't found any disadvantages yet. My Launcher page of "bookmarks" is shown below:

    I use an additional launcher page for all my bookmarks. I do 90% of my Pre use on that page and another right next to it (which has my most commonly used apps). I agree, if you had them spread out it would be a mess. Having Universal search bring them up right away has been a huge boon.

    I lose my bookmark launcher pages every time I visit the doctor.
