Firefox del.icio.us Bookmarks Add-On

If you have multiple computers, or just use several computers throughout the day, you know how hard it is to keep all bookmarks up to date on all computers.

When you save a bookmark, it only posts to your local computer. When you go somewhere else, the bookmark is not there.

For a while now, you have had the option of storing “live bookmarks” on sites like del.icio.us, but the interface could be cumbersome.  It involved going to their website, logging in, then posting your bookmark. All this took time.

Now, there is an easier way. If you have Firefox (and you definitely should), you can use the new Del.icio.us add-on to integrate bookmarks into your web browser. The add-on website describes the  extension as:

This extension integrates your browser with del.icio.us (http://del.icio.us/), the leading social bookmarking service on the Web. It does this by replacing the default bookmarking functionality in Firefox with a new experience that offers the following advantages:

– Search and browse your bookmarks
– Access your bookmarks from any computer at any time
– Keep your bookmarks organized with tags
– Share your bookmarks with friends or anyone on the Web
– Import your existing Firefox bookmarks
