Delicious – social bookmarking

www.delicious.com or del.icio.us – Sunnyvale, CA

A book mark saving and sharing web service started in 11/03 by Joshua Schachter, acquired by Yahoo in 12/05.

Delicious lets you store your bookmarks online, so you can access them from any computer and add bookmarks from anywhere, too. You use tags to organize and remember your bookmarks, which is a much more flexible system than folders.

You can also see the links that your friends and other people bookmark, and share links with them in return.

You can even browse and search Delicious to discover the cool and useful bookmarks that everyone else has saved – which is made easy with tags.
