Delibar – The Sexiest Delicious Client For Mac
I’m a Delicious user myself, I love storing things in the cloud so that I can access stuff from anywhere. I also love being able to access stuff in the cloud natively on my Mac. In this instance, I can now add, search or share bookmarks in my Delicious account from my Mac enjoyably.
What I Look For In A Delicious Client
My expectations are simple. It has to look decent, able to let me search my bookmarks, access my recent bookmarks, save bookmarks from any browser I am on and most importantly, to be able to hide the icon because I really does not need it to clutter my dock! Delibar exceeds my expectations with more.
I’m just gonna let the looks do the talking. Well, okay. The sleek interface is split into four categories – Bookmarks, Recent, Network and Saved.
Bookmarks lets you do searches on your Delicious account.
You can even do smart searches by using smart operators inside your search.
Use the “-” operator to exclude the next word or enclosing a string of words in quotes to search it in full phrase.
Want to access a recently saved bookmark? It’s all there on recent.
You can keep up with your network’s bookmarks from here.
This one is pretty cool. If you frequently find yourself searching for certain bookmarks, for example icons, you can save the search under this tab! Much like how Twitter’s saved searches work.
With the multiple accounts feature, you do not need to sign in and out of Delicious to access other accounts. That’s if you are a Delicious power user with multiple accounts, this will be very useful.
Social Network Sharing
Social media is on the rise these days and it is very smart of them to include social sharing as a feature! You can share you bookmarks via Twitter, Facebook, Delicious itself, email or MarsEdit. Need a short URL of that bookmark? Click the URL shortening icon and Delibar will shorten the URL for you via bitly and copy the resulting short URL to your clipboard!
Delibar incorporates the adding of bookmarks with your web browser via a bookmarklet. To add notes to your bookmark, just select any chunk of text on the page before clicking the bookmarklet. Delibar will also present to you a list of popular tags suggested by Delicious so that you can click on them to quickly add tags to your bookmark.
ShinyFrog recently reduced the pricing of Delibar from 18€ to USD$18. A good move by the developers in order for more people to come to terms with the price of the app.
If you’re a Delicious user, this is one app you cannot miss!
