Today I first time heard about news of Yahoo closing down their del.icio.us social bookmark service, and after tumbling around awhile, I then found out it is not going to happen after all. Anyway, I probably got one more gray hair when started to worry where on earth and how I would move all my hundreds of bookmarks from del.icio.us. …
First thing that came across on my bath of search results was Xmarks. I soon learned it does not yet work with Opera but there are plans to get Opera supported in near future, thanks to new Opera 11 extensions and APIs.
So, although del.icio.us is still continued, I became interested on alternative options. But then I stumbled on another problem. Delicious API only supports export/import of last 100 bookmarks. I can of course use export feature at del.icio.us but that format is not supported by browsers, thus giving no option to deliver the tags as well, and without tags it will become completely useless to have collection of hundreds of bookmarks.
All this means that I still have to continue using del.icio.us and hope it would only become better when Yahoo "finds the home outside the company".
