Comparison of bookmark services

I have been a Delicious user since 2006. Of course, some time ago, we had a long episode of uncertainty, but that has come and gone. Things have quieted down around Delicious. I’d almost say too quiet, and I’m wondering if we are going to suddenly be greeted to a “Sorry, Delicious is no more” […]

What happens to your data when your computer floods/catches fire/explodes?
