    Yahoo to close Delicious

    Better get a copy of all your bookmarks if you use the service.
    Following Layoffs, Yahoo Cuts Products: MyBlogLog, Delicious, Yahoo Buzz | Liz Gannes | NetworkEffect | AllThingsD

    You can export your bookmarks in HTML via https://secure.delicious.com/settings/bookmarks/export
    or in XML via curl https://{your username}:{your password}@api.del.icio.us/v1/posts/all > bookmarks.xml

    I signed up over a year ago with Pinboard so it only cost me $2 or so. It's still worth it at the current price IMO.

    To be honest, I couldn't even tell you what Delicious is or what it does.

    It is one of the first and most popular social bookmarking sites. You can store bookmarks along with tags and access them from any PC / Device.

    For Alternatives try -

    Pinboard - antisocial bookmarking
    historious - "a great delicious alternative!"
    Smart Automatic Bookmarks - favbot
    Social Media Services Directory - Shareaholic

    I have a place where I keep my bookmarks though..... Google. They store every bookmark I've ever used or needed.

    For my own bookmarks, I have chrome set to synchronise itself - so I get the same ones on different devices, so long as they are running Chrome! Does me just fine.

    T'is true.

    Mozilla's weave and Chrome's syncing extensions have been life savers and I think are definitely the way forward..

    I had to start a-fresh though when I first actively started using those services. Never was very organised or structured with bookmarks in the past but am now..

    I suppose which is best depends upon how many browsers you use. I regularly use Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer and Safari across multiple PCs & VMs both at home and work so Mozilla's Weave and Chrome Sync just wouldn't be suitable. The advantage to the server-based bookmarking services that Somabc mentioned over everything else is that you can access your bookmarks through literally any browser and there isn't any syncing involved because everything is stored centrally.

    As a school we use (used) Delicious to share URLs amongst staff... and parents. It's great because anyone can access them anywhere.
