Delicious is winding up, you can export your bookmarks so that you have a backup copy. You could also import your delicious bookmarks into Diigo, Xmarks, Chrome, Opera, Firefox and Internet Explorer, however, what now? Which bookmark service can you use to store your bookmarks in the cloud?
Thanks to the internet you will at-least find a few options for something you want to do, some of them might be free, some not. Here is a list of alternatives you could use for bookmarking in the cloud.
Google Chrome Sync – If you use Google Chrome, it has a handy feature which allows you to sync your bookmarks in the cloud. You could make use of it and have your bookmarks available on any PC running Google Chrome. If you don’t have Google Chrome handy, you will find all those bookmarks in Google Docs. Alternatively you could also use Google Bookmarks.
Opera Link – Another browser based backup service, but this time for Opera. I guess I wouldn’t even have to tell Opera users about this. Use this service to backup and sync your bookmarks across Opera.
Diigo – Diigo is another good service which provides with an easy way to bookmark web pages on the web. It also has some cool apps which allow you to read those bookmarks on a device like iPhone and read the webpages while you are offline. Diigo also offers a Chrome App called "Read Later Fast" which allows you to store webpages in Google Chrome and read them later.
Xmarks – Many of you might be aware of Xmarks which was recently acquired by LastPass. This service has been very popular and is used by thousands of people. Xmarks also provides users a way to discover new webpages using information stored by other users, something similar to what Delicious provided users with.
I find that these three alternatives should be able to get you over your Delicious hangover, however, if you are looking for more you can always try out one of other options available below.
What’s your favorite bookmarking service? Were you a core Delicious user and are shifting to a new one. If so which one do you prefer to shift to.
