Delicious+Chrome: Clean and Easy

15 September 2008 49 Comments

The Simple Fix

Delicious does not currently have an add-on for Chrome, but you can still create Delicious bookmarks from within Chrome.   Just drag this link up to your Bookmarks Toolbar: Del.icio.us  

Better than an Add-on

When Delicious does release the inevitable Chrome add-on in a few weeks or months, will you install it? I will probably just keep this button instead. I think it is the simplist and best way to use Delicious.

Do you remember when Firefox was clean and fast?

You remember. Before you got it all hussied up with Fire Gestures and Adbock and all those add-ons. This time, keep the two browsers seperated - Firefox for the full-featured browsing experience and Chrome for the fast and clean browsing experience. If you are like me, you will probably choose the fast one every time. Its the same reason you use Google search instead of Yahoo.
Now. Tell me how much you love me.

    Hey … thanks a ton!!! This is brilliant!

  • mcl said:

    Excellent. A tip executed in 5 secs and deployed in a minute. Like the man says ‘Simple and Quick and no add-ons’
    Suggest you bookmark this page in Delicious and then you can quickly re-use it with Chrome on different computers.

  • Lyle said:

    Half the problem solved.

    How do I see the delicious bookmarks without having to browse to their site?

  • Jack F said:

    THANK YOU! Firefox is so slow for browsing, but I always use Delicious so I’m glad I found this!

    @Lyle - just add a bookmark that points to delicious.com/home and that will take you to your bookmarks.

  • Melvin said:

  • narcokleptik said:

    awesome, thanks. and i agree- add-ons are cool, but ultimately become like (many, not all) smartphone apps–your effort to make things more convenient makes your life more complicated.

  • hwani said:

    Great!! Thanks a lot :)

  • Brendan said:


    Starting a JAVA course now, so will see if I can understand what you did soon.

  • neeraj said:

    fantastic, very useful.

  • hazelbroom said:

    You are well loved!

  • Harald said:

    Well its a good idea as long as you just want to bookmark pages.
    But what when I want to search for bookmarks I have allready saved?
    Then I’ll have to go to the delicious home page, which frankly is horrible to use.

    With the firefox plugin for delicious i can get up a sidebar and search in all the delicious bookmaks I have saved.

    So until you can show me something in chrome that is that simple I’ll stick with Firefox. Though I have started to use Chrome a lot more. It still cant match Firefox on available tools.

  • Joel said:

    …which is exactly what Ninja said in his post, Harald.

    Ninja, this is brilliant. Thanks for the work, nicely done.

  • Eric said:

    What the guy above said.


  • Ubuntu101 said:

    This took me all of five minutes, a search on yahoo, first match more trouble then it is worth - the second match this site, as simple as anything else and Delicious was back on the toolbar.

    Astounding sometimes the simplicity, no it doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of the firefox extension but it does what it should do - Actually work.

    So thanks for putting in the most simple terms and clearing up the confusion that may of arisen if to many others followed the first link they saw in the google search resuls.

  • milas said:

    wow!!! thank you very much!

  • Haider Lasne said:

    it works - Very nice!!!

  • Marie said:

    Killer!! I am so excited to have found this. It works wonderfully, and no I will not be installing a Delicious add on. I like the speed and simplicity of Chrome. Why mess with a good thing?

  • Amy said:

    Love it, thank you!!!

  • Buzz Killer said:

    Chrome has no add-on architecture. There will be no forthcoming add-onn from delicious or anywhere else. Use Firefox!

  • Bill said:

    This simple Chrome Extension for Delicious.com may be of interest as well.

    It has a customizable keyboard shortcut & selected text populates your notes field.

  • harrynmann said:

    genius….love hos it so simple you can’t find it!

    A powerful share, I simply given this onto a colleague who was doing a bit of similar evaluation on this. He actually bought me breakfast because I discovered it for him.. smile.

  • Julius Zeyadeh said:

    Palms lower, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It can be an enormous selection of all forms of apps vs a fairly sad choice of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially within the realm of matches, but I’m not guaranteed I would wish to bet to the potential if this element is vital for you. The iPod can be a very much much better choice in that circumstance.

    I do consider all of the ideas you have introduced on your post.

    They are really convincing and will definitely work.
    Nonetheless, the posts are very short for starters.
    May just you please prolong them a little from subsequent time?
    Thanks for the post.
