Since the announcement from Yahoo that they are planning to sell off Delicious, I have been searching for a simple bookmarking service to save my bookmarks. Importing Delicious Bookmarks but could not stick with that. The main reason behind this was that the Bookmark service should have the access from any where any browser. My search was ended up while I came across the wonderful and simple Bookmarking tool Yummymarks which allows you to save and access your Bookmarks from any browser.
