what did you tell them when they said 'i have already bookmarks in my browser'?

i started hacking on a similar idea (a chrome extension that monitors every url I visit and logs them with a web service that performs snapshots and full text searches), but then realized chrome's history already performs full text searching.

I said that it's not comparable, as the browser only stores the title and gives you lists, etc. Something like Google Bookmarks is a more direct competitor, but I don't think that's the thing to watch out for either, as it seems to be someone's weekend project and they don't really develop it any more. I'm much more worried about Pinboard, for example.
