Can anyone here suggest a good free/cheap bookmark sync software that isn't filled with spyware?

You used the word "bookmark" several times so I am assuming that you are reffering to Netscape. If so I have been doing this manually from my home to my work PC. I just put on a floppy my bookmark.htm file which is located under (If you let NN choose the default dir) c:\program files\netscape\users\whatever\bookmark.htm. Then once on floppy and at work I open/choose edit with the work bookmarks and choose import, select the file on floppy and let it pull the bookmark.htm file in.

Actually, I used SynchIt to synch all of my 'bookmarks' in Netscape, Mozilla and IE, for all of my machines. (Opera does a fine job importing from IE) For testing purposes I have multiple versions of Netscape browsers (2.02, 3.0, 3.01, 3.02, 3.03, 3.04, 4.03, 4.07, 4.08, 4.5, 4.75...you get the picture) so it was really handy to just have SynchIt make sure all my 'bookmarks' were the same across all browsers and all of my various machines.
I shall give HotLinks.com a whirl. Thanks.
Checked out Blink, but their whole site looks like a giant pop-up ad. A lot of spy-ware on their free stuff page, so I think I'll pass on that one.
Any other suggestions?
