Use a speedy Safari 4 Beta 'plug-in' Web Browsers
After having changed over to Safari a few months ago, I noticed the lack of a fast plug-in for my Delicious bookmarks. The website is okay, but when you use it a lot, its lack of speed can be annoying.

Hence I decided to write my own super fast Delicious 'plug-in' which isn't actually a plug-in at all. Instead, it's entirely browser-based; you can try it out at this URL. The site makes use of a new feature of HTML5 which allows you to have local storage of remote data. This makes the site very fast, but currently Safari 4 Beta is the only browser that supports this feature.

[robg adds: I haven't tested this one, as I don't have any public Delicious bookmarks, which is what the site works with. As a result, you don't need to enter your Delicious password to use the site -- so you can test it without fear of password harvesting.]

Hmm, by plugin, I hoped it would allow you to quickly bookmark links to delicious, much like the Firefox PLUGIN allows you to do. A website to view public delicious bookmarks isn't much of a value added plugin.

"my own super fast Delicious 'plug-in' which isn't actually a plug-in at all".

Reading (and by correlation, understanding) the description would have saved you the need to make this comment.

It is a neat demo of some of the abilities of HTML5, though.

What's wrong with DeliciousSafari?

I've been using DeliciousSafari for quite some time now and its just the perfect Delicious addon for Safari. Does everything you would want. It's not free, but for $10, it's just what I was looking for.

You could also use Cocoalicious to maintain the list of bookmarks:

Then add this javascript as a bookmarklet to your browser to easily send stuff across to Cocoalicious:

If you highlight/select some text prior to clicking the Bookmarklet it will appear in the extended notes of your new bookmarket too :)

What's wrong with the delicious bookmarklet buttons?
Authored by: soundsgoodtome on May 07, '09 02:47:54AM
They work in any browser:

I have mine in Safari's bookmark bar, in slot #3, which makes the keyboard shortcut ⌘-3. From any web page, I hit the shortcut; a window comes up, allowing me to type tags; I hit Return; and I'm done. It's easy, and it's fast. Maybe I don't understand what the author of this hint wants to accomplish.

I second that

Maybe the OP was also referring to browsing one's bookmarks as well (but I use WebnoteHappy for that).
