Delicious Rounded Logo

The chances are that you will have spotted the logo on the left many times on your travels and you have probably also heard about Delicious but you might not be familiar with what it is and what it does but I am urging you now that you should sit up and start using it. At it's most basic level Delicious is an incredibly simple way of storing your bookmarks online which can then be accessed from any computer once you log in. With most of our working lives revolving around online content Delicious is a ridiculously useful tool but the benefits far exceed simply organizing your own content and we try to explain them here and give you as many resources as possible for you to understand it and start using it yourself.

As always with these sorts of services that people have trouble understanding I think it is always best to start with a video that explains the service and the guys from Common Craft do a great job of explaining Delicious in simple English...
