I’ve been using the Del.icio.us bookmarks site for a long time now, but recently decided to create a brand new account. I started from scratch and imported all of my bookmarks from Firefox. I had Del.icio.us automatically assign tags to them as they imported. It did a pretty nice job at that, for the most part. What troubled me is that it set all of my imported bookmarks to “not shared” status. This for your own privacy, I understand, but there is no option to make them shared. It appears the only way to turn them all into shared bookmarks, is to change each bookmark individually. One site I read said that Del.icio.us was working to add such a feature to change them in bulk. That site was dated back to 2005, and today, we still don’t have the option.
I do love the simplicity of the Del.icio.us site, but it feels like it’s in need of a bit of an overhaul. It is a little slow at responding sometimes, too, despite it’s lack of graphical flair. I still love it, and use it daily, it’s just that it’s starting to feel neglected by its owners. Hopefully that isn’t the case, Yahoo!
