Not sure about others, save for Dr. Ramen (who uses org mode), but I use
org-mode like so:

(setq org-remember-templates
      '(("Bookmark" ?b "* %a %^g %!" "~/bookmarks.org" "Main")
        ("CoffeeTips" ?c "* %?%:subject \n\n %i" "~/coffee-tips.org")
        ("Tasks" ?t "* TODO %?\n  %u" "~/todo.org" "Tasks")
        ("Notes" ?n "* %u %?" "~/notes.org" "Notes")

(defun rdc-bookmark ()
  "shortcut for storing bookmarks with org-remember"
  (org-remember nil "b")
  ;; we want to save the bookmarks file.  

Which gives you a bookmark file that looks like this:

** Page 1 Title                                 :tag1:tag2:tag3:
** Page 2 Title                                 :tag1:tag2:tag3:
** Page 3 Title                                 :tag1:tag2:tag3:

Then you use C-c C-o to open bookmarks and C-c \ to search for a tag.
I'm sure there are other commands to use but I've not needed them.

I'm actually the one who requested the feature allowing the w3 page
title to be passed.

I will always love the false image I had of you.
