Mmm, del.icio.us…

This weekend I got annoyed looking for bookmarks that are on my work machine, my desktop, my laptop, etc and started looking for a bookmark manager that would spare me the hassle of keeping an html page updated.

I know del.icio.us has been around for a while, but to be honest I never looked at it, and in fact I thought it was something like digg(which is cool, but not what I was looking for in this case.

del.icio.us is kind of like flickr for bookmarks. You can tag your bookmarks in whatever ways make sense to you, and you end up with a page with a nice URL that’s easy to remember. You can share your bookmarks if you want (mine are at http://del.icio.us/yacullo)and create a “network” of your friends’ bookmarks. You can also search other people’s booksmarks, see what has been added recently, what is under what tags and so on.

If you give this a try, I highly recommend the FireFox extension which adds a “Tag this” button to your main toolbar.

Now I’ve got all my bookmarks whereever I go and I’m happy.

    Mike I just found Google Browser sync. It’s a firefox plugin that allows you sync your firefox profiles centrally.
