Speaking of Delicious

I noticed this evening that they’ve added a beta “browse bar” feature. Seems that, in a nutshell, you can use that address to simply browse from one bookmarked site to the next. Great for creating a to-read list, or even a nice quick check of a handful of sites you want to look at.

Go here, for example, to “browse” my latest bookmarks one at a time instead of just seeing the list of links.

And yes, it also supports tags, simply add the appropriate tag to the end of the address, like this http://delicious.com/browsebar/mikemac29/photography

Nice. Think I might have to consider creating an ediscovery reading list this way and sharing it with others. Could be a very useful tool to help attorneys and others stay on top of ediscovery news without the need to click through articles or use an RSS reader themselves.

What other uses can you come up with?

    Hi there, nice interesting site. I use delicious too, all the time and I like the new browserbar feature. I like reading through the latest links my friends have saved, and from people like you, however there’s no easy way to quickly delicious/bookmark a site I like. When you’re in the browserbar view, the url for the site isn’t exposed unless you use the X. The X is counter-intuitive because it should close the bar and leave us at the current page, but instead it opens the current page in a new window or tab, and leaves the current window alone. It should be a little arrow or something instead of an x. But other than that, I think its a great feature.

      Thanks for pointing that out Oscar, didn’t realize the problem there because I was looking at my own bookmarks, so no need to try an bookmark again!

      Still, it’s a nice way to create a “read-later” list for yourself.
