Del.icio.us Bookmarks

I have just recently gotten in the trend of using del.icio.us for my quick bookmarking needs.

I like to have my important bookmarks saved in my browser – and then for stuff I would want to come back later and read or check out, I use del.icio.us. Some folks out there would like to use del.icio.us instead of the default Firefox bookmarks system. For you there is del.icio.us Bookmarks.

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:

After installing this extension, your browser bookmarking functionality will change significantly.

2 Pane Bookmarks

One neat thing that Opera does well is having two viewing panes for the bookmarks. I don’t know if it is better or worse than doing things the normal way – but it is a different way of browsing through things. If you have wanted to do this yourself – but didn’t want to move away from Firefox, have no fear!

All you need to do is pick up the 2 Pane Bookmark extension for Firefox. This extension does it’s best job to bring this functionality from Opera to your browser of choice, Firefox.

Add Favicons to Del.icio.us

I have just recently given del.icio.us a second shot.

After being kind of disappointed the first time around, I do have to say that I am becoming a little more hooked on the idea now. The whole process is easier, but there was just something missing from the interface.

I needed favicons on these links!

Well, I had a look around and I hunted down a Greasemonkey script that did the job. This script, fav.icio.us2, does one simple job and it does it well. It adds favicons to all the links you see that have been saved to del.icio.us.

Now all I need is more time to save all my favorite links.

Favicon Picker 2

Not too long ago, I shared the fact that my bookmark toolbar menu doesn’t have any text on the bookmarks I have listed there. Text takes up too much room, and why is it needed when you have a favicon for the Web site? The only problem to that is that not every Web site has a favicon to pick. That is where Favicon Picker 2 comes into the picture.

Microsummary Buddy

When it comes to bookmarking Web pages in Firefox, the process could be a lot easier. Sure, it isn’t too hard right now but I want it to be brain dead simple. One extension that I have found that does just that is Microsummary Buddy.

To use microsummaries, you have to know what they are. Microsummaries are regularly-updated short summaries of Web pages. They are small enough to fit in the space available to a bookmark label, they provide more useful information about pages than static page titles, and they get regularly updated as new information becomes available.

Clipmarks

I couldn’t tell you the number of times I find something cool Online. I am always finding cool things, and I probably forget where half of them were five minutes after finding them. Clipmarks is a nice tool to keep my cool things in order.

Move Firefox Sidebar

Does it really bother you that the sidebar that comes up in Firefox is on the left side? Would you rather it would come up on the right side? If you are this picky – you need some help.

Since I am not in the place to give you the professional kind, I figured I would help you out with the technical kind. The Sidebar on Right Firefox extension should fix your annoyance and get you back to browsing.
