Browser extension/bookmarklet: Recognize if site already bookmarked

Right now there’s no indication in the extension that a site is already bookmarked. If you re-bookmark a page, its description gets overwritten. It would be nice to know this information already exists before accidentally overwriting it.

    For speed we don’t bother querying whether it exists first, but happy to add this in if it’s a tradeoff everyone’s willing to make.

    Could this happen async once the page has loaded and indicate on the extension icon?

    This is pretty annoying, especially how it deletes your descriptions without warning with no way to recover. If speed is the trade off, I like the async suggestion above. You could process after upload and move into a “Duplicates” folder or something?
