In a press recover on a company’s blog, Pinboard, a world’s best amicable bookmarking site for introverts, announced it has acquired Delicious, a neglected step-child of bookmarking platforms, from Delicious Media, a association that acquired Delicious from Science in 2016, a association that bought it from AVOS in 2014, a association that bought it from Yahoo in 2011, a association that purchased Delicious in 2005. Which means you’re gonna have to pierce those bookmarks about training how to bake a pie, fire a wedding, or whatever we consider you’ll click on eventually.

Pinboard owner Maciej Cegłowski hasn’t laid out what he skeleton to do with Delicious, other than make it a read-only site. You’ll still be means to entrance your formerly combined bookmarks, though adding new ones is out of a doubt come Jun 15. You’ll be means to trade your Delicious information possibly to Pinboard or another bookmarking service. Ceglowski pronounced a squeeze was partially encouraged by a enterprise to make certain “it wouldn’t disappear from a web.”

“Please note that there is no time pressure for relocating off Delicious. You won’t be means to save new bookmarks after Jun 15, though all else will continue to work, or mangle in informed ways.”

If you’re bookmarking things to review afterwards you’re doing it wrong. Use a use like Instapaper, Pocket or Flipboard to get your reading done. For anything else, bookmarks are a approach to go. Keeping them synced is easy if you’re doing it right. By doing it right we meant profitable for it.


If we aren’t really penetrating on interruption with $11 per year for a bookmarking use we can always go a giveaway route. Google offers a possess bookmark syncing use with a accounts so we can see them anywhere, on any device, as prolonged as it has a Chrome browser on it. Apple inclination let we sync a bookmarks by Safari. Free bookmark syncing services certain do exist, though Delicious’ difficulty was caused by this really premise. Free isn’t a approach to go if you’re looking for longevity in your use of choice, generally one that isn’t tied to a vital corporation.

Do not try to contest with Pinboard.
