Yesterday the official del.icio.us Firefox extension was announced. I’ve installed it on Firefox 1.5 on Mac OS X and it is awesome. The various tagging options is great, especially being able to highlight text and use that as the expanded description. You can search your del.icio.us bookmarks directly from the Firefox search field. I’ve only noticed one big thing that is missing so far: bookmark backup and/or syncing. The other Firefox plugins for syncing and/or backuping up your del.icio.us bookmarks aren’t that great, so I’d hoped that this extension would have filled in that problem space also. Except for that omission this extension is a must for any del.icio.us user in my book.
I’m not sure why it took so long for this come out, but this I’m thrilled that it is finally here.
