The Web is a big place, full of new and interesting things to discover. The problem is finding the good stuff and keeping track of it all. This is where Delicious can help.

Delicious is a Social Bookmarking service, which means one can save all of his or her bookmarks online, share them with other people, and see what other people are bookmarking. . In addition, the search and tagging tools helps the user keep track of the entire bookmark collection and find tasty new bookmarks from others.

How bookmarks are organized

Folders were the old way to organize your bookmarks. They were great if you only had a few bookmarks and a few folders, but as your collection grew, it became harder and harder to decide what goes where. Delicious has a new and better way: tags.

Tags are simply words you use to describe a bookmark. Unlike folders, you make up tags when you need them and you can use as many as you like. This means, for example, that all of the bookmarks you tag with funny and video will automatically be placed in the "funny" collection and the "video" collection. Since tags work the same way for everyone, you can also check out other people's "funny" or "video" bookmarks. You can even combine tags to see bookmarks with funny and video.
