Though an interesting idea, it’s kind of hard to have your bookmarks accessible all the time by means of only HTML. I don’t like websites being framed in or proxied in for adding bookmark buttons (that raises privacy concerns), and I don’t like popups either. But I still like having my bookmarks accessible from anywhere. is a nice solution for bookmarking (and has the advantage over Digg that you have private bookmarks as well)…

I have found that with Firefox’s ‘Live Bookmarks’ hits the right spot for me. I never really look for particularly old bookmarks. So I just keep my recent ones as an RSS feed. That covers 95% of what I want as older bookmarks just fall off the end of the feed.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for featuring my app here on the site. In response to superpotential on the implementation aspect. It was never created to rival (I’m also a user.) It was simply a small little feature for website members on the social networking site to be able to quickly bookmark forum threads and member profiles. So far I’ve had great response with it and it seems to be very cross-browser compatible.

While I use delicious myself, the most obvious use for this sort of thing is *internal* to a firewall-protected website. You may want users to be able to socially bookmark pages when delicioius is not accessible/blocked. Once you rule out delicious and think about collaborative bookmarking associated to a single application or app suite, I think it opens up different possibilities.
