"The bad news recently arrived that Yahoo, the struggling search/media/something-or-other Internet giant, let go about 700 staff members. The company is also shuttering a handful of products-Delicious, a popular online bookmarking service used widely in Mac and iOS apps, was rumored to be on the "sunset" list, but Yahoo changed its mind. Still, with the future of Delicious in the air, social bookmarkers may feel like Yahoo is leaving your treasure trove of links hanging in the cloud."
This article offers several options, the most notable in my opinion are Xmarks, Evernote and Springpad. At least those are the ones that I use, when I use something other than my own bookmarks folders to keep things that I might want to refer to later. But I rarely use them, instead opting for saving my own bookmarks and syncing to MobileMe. I stick mostly to Safari, using Chrome when I want to watch something on YouTube or anywhere else that Flash is required. I just don't see the end of Delicious as the end of the world, what are your thoughts?
