Delicious.com will not be shut down

There has been rumours swirling around after slides of a Yahoo! meeting was exposed, suggesting that delicious.com, a very well-known bookmarking service will be shut down. Naturally I was worried about the issue as I myself am an active delicious.com user as well. However, since the news was not officially from Yahoo! I decided to sit back and await an official confirmation. As it turns out, I was not disappointed. Yahoo! has finally come out with an official statement saying that they are not planning to shut down delicious.com, but will consider selling it instead.

No real reason for me to panic, after all. I will still continue using delicious.com until further notice.

    16. I have lots of bookmarks in firefox and i want all of them in internet explorer.

      Any idea on how to do this?

      Thanks a bunch!

    17. I have a slight understanding of what each service is..
      Twitter – update your status
      Digg – Share news stories
      Delicious – Social bookmarking

      Basically, these are all web-social services, right?

      But I’m the most “tech-savvy” out of my friends (which isn’t saying much). None of them even know what an RSS reader is. Many of them have never heard of Flickr.

      So it isn’t like my friends and I will trade Twitters or anything. Digg, I’m kind of missing the point of, but it must have some logical use, because it’s hit it big. Delicious is pretty popular, but what’s the point of social bookmarking if you don’t have any friends that will contribute to the social part? I already use Google bookmarks. Should I give Delicious a shot?

      I want your opinions. Would Twitter, Digg, or Delicious really benefit me in any way if none of my friends use any of the mentioned services?

    18. I just set up a new user on my XP powered computer but don’t want to recreate all of the bookmarks one-by-one. How do I import them from my other user?

    21. And totally I wanted to know where the file of bookmarks is saved in computer?For example I know that the file of Favorites of Internet explorer is saved in (Documents and settings folder),but how about Firefox?

    22. Yahoo decided to have the bookmarks in a toolbar. This toolbar works with internet explorer, but does not work with my browser. Have I lost all my bookmarks or can I recover them? And How?

    23. Long story but I have almost 2000 bookmarks and I need to delete them all in bulk but its only letting me do one at a time I’m trying to right click and delete a bunch but it isnt letting me.
