ObsidianBookmarks allows you to save your bookmarks in plaintext/markdown files. It integrates with an Obsidian Vault (needs to be installed and setup separately).

With ObsidianBookmarks, you can click a button to bookmark a link and it gets sent to a markdown file instead of saving in your browser. This has the advantage of it being indexed by your operating system so that Spotlight search can find the link if you search it within your computer.

If your Obsidian vault has many files, you can choose which file to append the bookmarked link to as the native application sends a list of all markdown files in your Obsidian vault (see screenshot).

ObsidianBookmarks works alongside the native app which implements the functionality to receive the URL and Tab title from the extension and append it to the markdown files (this is done as WebExtension API doesn't have file write access).

The extension is opensource and doesn't send any data to a remote third party for any purpose. All data is on your computer. You can review the complete source code and find instructions for setup here: https://github.com/abhn/Bookmarks-For-Obsidian
