To each her own, I suppose. I do use both: links in org-files (they are
great!) for longer lasting things (I keep a kind of worklog and refer to
relevant web pages, places in the source of my project, etc). OTOH, for
shorter things, I do use bookmarks quite a lot, especially with short
names (like "1", "2", etc). C-x r m 3 and then later C-x r b 3 is just
incredibly convenient.
