Google Chrome Extension: Delicious Bookmarks

In my leisure time, I've got some time to do an extension for Google Chrome. I've been doing an extension for Firefox, so had some interest doing one for Chrome too. So, I created this extension "Delicious Bookmarks".

Google Chrome started support for extensions just abut 9 months ago for it's developer channel.(Developer Channel is the unstable version of Google Chrome; unstable than Beta version). And in early December 2009, Beta version of Windows release came with extensions enabled. With that Chrome Extension Gallery is opened, a common platform to download and install extensions, like Mozilla Firefox Add-on site. And in late January 2010 Google Chrome removed the beta tag off its extensions and now they are enabled for the stable general version. For Linux, extensions are enabled for it's beta version as of now.

Enough History! Let's talk about the extension I've done. As you may know Delicious is a online social bookmarking site for storing, sharing, and discovering web bookmarks. I've been addicted to this very much. If you go through my profile you may see that I've bookmarked more than 200 bookmarks in it. As I moved on to Google Chrome after using Mozilla Firefox some time, I had the need of having a simple extension to quickly and easily save bookmarks. And I'm sure most of the folks who are using Delicious would be loved to have a this kind of extension.

This is a simple, easy to use extension with a user-friendly interface. All the generally needed features such as tagging the bookmarks, writing  down notes, send to twitter etc. are available. So why don't you try it yourself!


  1. the support and FAQ link for this chrome extension leads here. I hope I have the correct place.
    What I want to know is how this extension works.
    Seems I can bookmark into Delicious, but where can I look and use my bookmarks. The Crtl B function that many know well from the Delicious extension in FF?

  2. Some people like a simple, ONE-CLICK bookmarking to Delicious. This extension is aimed at those people. So, this currently only has bookmark-into Delicious, but not view the current bookmarks.
    Yes, the CTRL+B is a good to have feature. I'll add it when I find some time. :)

  3. Have you any plans to update this to close the window after submission? Also, if it could open your Delicious bookmark page when it is pressed when on the New Tab page, that would be great. Otherwise, it's a really useful extension. Thanks.

  4. Glad to see this works with the new updates at Delicious. Nice Job! Thank you

  5. සිරා වැඩේ හොඳේ.....!!!!!!!!!!!! එල එල.........!!!!!

  6. Are you going to fix it now that the Delicious folk have changed their website (again)? Please? Pretty please? I stacking up a lot of emails with links I can't easily bookmark as the actual Delicious extension is too stupid to prompt you with your existing bookmarks or tell you if you've already bookmarked something.
