When given the assignment to bookmark a website on del.icio.us daily, I have no idea what del.icio.us was and did not think it would be useful for anything but this assignment. This belief stayed with me until I downloaded the del.icio.us extension for Mozilla and I had to do research for two final projects.
After downloading the the Mozilla extension, del.icio.us became much easier and much more convenient to use. Instead of flipping between windows or tabs and copying the link to the website you were trying to bookmark, I can now simply click the "TAG" button located on the task bar of Mozilla. I tag a lot more websites now, and for reasons other than that I have to for class.
Also, as the year winds down, I have two final projects to work on and do research for. del.icio.us has allowed me to easily keep track of important sites I have found for my projects. These sites are also easily accessible thanks to the tagging feature.
Unexpectedly, I have found del.icio.us very helpfull and easy to use over the semester. I was skeptical at first, but now use it almost daily because I want to, not because it is required.
