I really liked Google Chrome. It is fast and has a clean interface. One thing that was preventing me from switching to it is the lack of support for Delicious, where I keep my Web tags.
While we wait for extension support, there is a way to achieve good enough integration that makes Delicious usable from Chrome.
To be able to tag pages on Delicious from Chrome we can use a bookmarklet. Instructions:
- Open the Delicious bookmarklets help page.
- Press Control+B to show Chrome’s bookmarks bar.
- Still in the Bookmarklets page, locate the instructions for Safari.
- Drag the two links into your bookmarks bar.
You can use Chrome’s Omnibox to search inside your Delicious tags:
- Right-click in the Omnibox and select Edit search engines.
- In the Search Engines dialog press the Add button.
- Fill the form as follows:
- Name: Delicious
- Keywork: d
- URL: http://delicious.com/search?context=userposts&p=%s&lc=1&u=your_user_name
- Press OK to close the form.
Now on your Omnibox you can type “d”, the space bar, and your search term, like this:
And a search page in Delicious will be shown.
You can also integrate Google Bookmarks using the same technique described here.
I agree this is not as great as the Delicious extension for Firefox. But I think it is convenient enough to enable me to try switching to Chrome as my primary browser.
