Delicious is back! Well, it never really left, but I did. I was using Delicious for a while, but I started to look from something that would work across browsers and machines. I know Delicious can accomplish this through it’s extensions, but I was just not a fan of how it was working. So, I turned to Xmarks and tried that for a bit, but it really didn’t work any better for me. Next up was Google Chrome’s native bookmarks. The Chrome syncing made it so easy for me to have my bookmarks on all the machines I work on, plus all the other syncing capabilities are very convenient. I then heard Delicious would be going away and I made the decision to just use Chrome’s bookmarks. So, yes, I deleted my account and that was a mistake, but now I’m back and loving it.
Delicious is great because it doesn’t only bookmark your sites, but it gives you the capability to tag and provide descriptions for them. It allows me to track the when, why, where, how and even the who, if not myself; Which is very helpful for when your are searching or just don’t remember why you bookmarked it in the first place. Plus, you can share your links or make them private.
Since they’re back (not going away), they released a new feature with the server switch. They call this feature a “stack”, which is a great tool for grouping your share-able links that relate to a certain topic. I have one for CodeIgniter, which just has a bunch of links for helping people get started using the amazing PHP framework.
If you looking for a great social bookmarking tool, check out Delicious.
