del.icio.us logo

Google’s great. Really it is. Whenever you’re looking for anything specific, your chances are very good with Google. If you’re wondering what that baker’s name is again, if you want to know what the park is called close to that church, if you want to know what your high schools’ website is, you’ll probably find it.

But what if you wouldn’t want to search specific but associative? Like … you want to see some nice art. Try Googlin’ that! It just doesn’t work. But if you type that in del.icio.us and click ‘popular’, you’ll be amazed about what you’ll find. What it basically is, is a really simple bookmark site. You can collect, maintain and share bookmarks. When you first open the site you might think: is this it?

Well, it’s a lot more than what your ever judging mind thinks it is. What really sets del.icio.us apart form Google, it’s driven by real people having real minds and tastes. That means the ‘system’ can’t be tricked, and popularity by amount of pointing on the web links don’t matter: it’s for the people by the people. No filtering required.

Then if you import your collected bookmarks from Firefox (you are using Firefox and not Microsoft Explorer, I couragiously presume?) you can from then on save new bookmarks from any computer to one place, which is great. Why is this great? Well, your computer might crash and die for good. Your bookmarks will be (like anything in life: relatively) safe.

Go get a del.icio.us account! It’s free, so I’m not trying to sell you anything!

If you install Delicious bookmark for Firefox, del.icio.us will be fully integrated with Firefox.
