Google Chrome & Delicious

While there are a few fledgling Chrome extensions that add the standard Delicious buttons to the user interface. However, that’s not what I really need. I need the Delicious toolbar that Firefox’s plugin has so I can pull up my bookmarks with my favorite tags into the toolbar. As a stop gap, this post has a way to add a search engine.

Searching pages

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
    • https://delicious.com/search?p=%s&chk=&fr=del_icio_us&lc=1&atags=&rtags=&context=userposts|your_user_name|

Press OK to close the form.
