I like because it lets me save and categorize my bookmarks, and it lets me get to my bookmarks wherever I am.  Most of my bookmarks on Delicious are private.  They are just links to things I want to be able to find again.

Recently an article appeared on TechCrunch saying might be shut down by its current owner, Yahoo.   Later, a note appeared on the Delicious blog stating:

No, we are not shutting down Delicious. While we have determined that there is not a strategic fit at Yahoo!, we believe there is a ideal home for Delicious outside of the company where it can be resourced to the level where it can be competitive.

So I would describe the future of Delicious as “uncertain”. I don’t  make much use of the “social” part of Delicious.  I’ve tried Stumbleupon and it is a bit too social for me, offering to help me find stuff based on my interests, and wants me to share everything.  I think I do better searching on my own for things that interest me using Google.

I’m looking around for a replacement for Delicious.  If you’re in the same boat, lists ten alternatives: 10 alternatives to bookmarking
