XML Bookmark Exchange Language (XBEL) is a format for expressing bookmarks and other such collections of Web links. It is used as the basic storage for bookmarks in several Web browsers.
The XML Bookmark Exchange Language (XBEL) [community standard] is a simple and popular format for storing sets of Web browser bookmarks. The Python/XML special interest group (SIG) developed XBEL in the early days of XML. Because of its simplicity and adoption by browser vendors, it remains in heavy use, despite the fact that there has not been much work on it lately. XBEL uses XML's hierarchical nature to model nested folders and bookmarks, each with the usual properties of title and URL. It takes advantage of XML's extensibility by providing hooks for vendors to add additional details as needed.
