What is a XBEL file?
XBEL is an acronym for XML Bookmark Exchange Language. This programming language is an Internet bookmarks exchange file format and is a standard format for the sharing of Internet URLs.
This XML Bookmark Exchange Language language was created by SIG for XML processing in Python. At the time of its development, Python was relatively new and the XBEL file format was meant to show what the language could do.
The XBEL files are used to describe a user's Internet bookmark information for a wide range of Internet browsers.
The Midori, Arora, Galeon and Konqueror Internet browsers all use the XBEL file format when storing a user's Internet bookmarks.
