Last week I hit 400 bookmarks in my Del.icio.us account. For anyone who doesnâ€™t know, Del.icio.us is an online bookmark managing site. I know that sounds really boring and you are thinking why would I possibly need that? But it has absolutely changed the way I work and I would have to say that it is one of the best and most useful web application I have come across so far.
Why use Del.icio.us?
Del.icio.us is perfect for anyone who either:
a) wants a way to access all their bookmarks from any computer
b) has a lot of bookmarks and wants a way to organise them
c) is interested in seeing what other people are bookmarking
d) wants to share their bookmarks with other people (optional)
I not only use del.icio.us to bookmark sites that I like, but also for sites that I have stumbled across and donâ€™t have the time to read straight away. I simply tag these pages as â€˜todoâ€™ and then when I have time I can filter my list of bookmarks by the tag â€˜todoâ€™ and voila hours of entertainment.
Rumor is that version 2 will be released soon and from what I have seen it looks good.
So if you aren’t already using del.icio.us check it out at: http://del.icio.us and see if it is useful for you. Oh and don’t forget to get the firefox plugin so you can easily tag and store any page you come across quickly and easily.
