Simple Delicious is a Firefox add-on which displays a user's Delicious bookmarks in Firefox. We all know that it can be quite useful to use a service like Delicious to store all of your bookmarks on the web, as you can access them from any computer system that is connected to the Internet this way.
The same is not true for bookmarks that you have saved in Firefox for example, which you cannot access if you access the Internet from a public computer.Webmasters use this service as well to promote links from their own websites.
While the service is nice if you are on the road it does not make much sense to use the website if you are working at home using your own computer. It's not really comfortable to go to Delicious, login and search through your bookmarks or tags to find the ones that you are looking for.
A far better way is the Simple Delicious add-on which creates a new entry in the Firefox menu giving you access to all of the bookmarks after logging in to the service. The bookmarks from Delicious are synced afterwards and sorted by tags which means that it will look crowded if you are one of those users who use lots of tags for every bookmark.
I guess it works best if you use one or two tags for every bookmark that you save at Delicious. You should note however that if you do use more than one tag that the bookmark will appear more than once in the list. So, the best way would be one tag for each bookmark.
I decided to create a new account just for this purpose because I have been using five and more tags per bookmark that I saved at Delicious.
Update: The Simply Delicious extension is not supporting newer versions of the Firefox web browser. While newer extensions are available for Delicious, none offers the option to display the bookmarks you have already saved in Firefox. The only functionality that they make available is to add the current page to your bookmarks on the site.
This means that you need to visit Delicious.com directly to access your bookmarks as there is no extension available that provides you with direct integration of your bookmarks in Firefox at the time of writing.
There is one workaround though. You can bookmark delicious.com in Firefox, open the bookmark's properties, and enable the "load this bookmark in sidebar" option to display it in a sidebar whenever it is opened.Advertisement
