Delicious beta arrives for Firefox 3

A Firefox 3 barrier just got lowered. The widely used plug-in for using Yahoo's Delicious bookmarking service, now works in beta form on Firefox 3.

Well, it took a few months, but Yahoo on Wednesday caught up to Firefox 3 with a beta plug-in for its Delicious bookmarking service.

The Firefox add-on for Delicious "now has full Firefox 3 support while retaining Firefox 2 compatibility," said Nick Nguyen, senior product manager for Delicious, in a blog posting.

Delicious lets people save their bookmarks online, tag them with descriptive keywords, and share them with other Delicious members.

It's only one plug-in, I know, but since I'd griped about its absence before , it's only fair for me to call out its availability for download now.

Firefox has a wealth of plug-ins to extend its abilities, but several don't work on Firefox 3, which is still in beta . Delicious is one very widely used tool, so the new plug-in should help lower barriers significantly.

The new plug-in also has a handful of features. None struck me as major, though the low-profile "classic mode" sounds promising; check the blog for a list.
