Just received an e-mail from Yahoo:
Yahoo! is excited to announce that Delicious has been acquired by the founders of YouTube, Chad Hurley and Steve Chen. As creators of the largest online video platform, Hurley and Chen have firsthand expertise enabling millions of consumers to share their experiences with the world. Delicious will become part of their new Internet company, AVOS.
What happens if you do not transfer your bookmarks
Delicious in its current form will be available until approximately July 2011.After that, you will no longer be able to use your existing Delicious account and will not have access to your existing bookmarks or account information.
One thought on “Delicious has a new owner — what this means for you”
As for the moment I’m currently using Google Bookmarks through the Google Toolbar for Firefox. It’s sad to see that ‘Google Bookmarks’ are not integrated in Chrome. I’m also missing out on the awesome AWESOME bar (-> Firefox) functionalities in Chrome.
