Import your Delicious links into Firefox 3

Now that Firefox supports bookmarks with tagging, you can now import copies of your Delicious links back into your browser with the help of this importing tool.   It’s very easy – in fact, once you’ve made backup copies of your Delicious and Firefox bookmarks, putting it all together is just a matter of a few mouseclicks.

The importing tool even brings over all your Delicious tags fully intact so you don’t have to re-tag everything which is good.   I have almost 12,500 items in my Delicious account (after moving over all my Stumbleupon links), so the thought of having to re-tag everything would have been too much to even contemplate.

  1. It's all a matter of personal preference. I was sceptical at first but I tried it out and Firefox 3 actually is extremely good when it comes to searching tags. If you've tagged each bookmark properly, then you've basically got your own mini-Google right in your own browser.

    So if you know you've seen a particular webpage before, and you need it again quickly, then rather than hunt through Google for ages and not find the page again (which can happen), you can instead enter the correct tags into Firefox and find the page in seconds.

  2. @J-F Arseneault: Think of it as your own personal Google with 12,500 URLs indexed, and keyword searches based on words you know you'll use and will match what you want to find. Now, why use Google again?
