Everybody has tried del.icio.us at least once. Some people like it, and some people find it confusing. There is no doubt that a Firefox extension would play a good part here in making it easier to use for everybody out there. That is what this del.icio.us Firefox extension does.
So what is del.icio.us? Google tells us, “Del.icio.us is social bookmarking, social software web service for storing and sharing web bookmarks. The site came online in late 2003 and was developed by Joshua Schachter, co-maintainer of Memepool. According to del.icio.us/doc/about: Everything posted to del.icio.us is publicly viewable; it is not a tool for storing private bookmark collections. Many people use del.icio.us to publish ‘linkblogs’ on their weblogs.”
Here is what the author has to say about this del.icio.us Firefox extension:
The del.icio.us extension for Firefox offers everything you need to seamlessly integrate the del.icio.us service with your Firefox browser. Included in the extension are two buttons which allow you to easily post items to del.icio.us, and access your saved items from del.icio.us.
In addition to the buttons, the extension allows for right-click posting functionality. A del.icio.us menu is also installed which allows for quick access to common pages on del.icio.us as well as keyboard shortcuts. The extension also installs the del.icio.us search plug-in right into the existing Firefox search toolbar.
This extension is for Firefox versions 1.0 – 1.5 and once you install it, you will not find an easier way to sink the functionality of del.icio.us with your everyday life.
