8. Clipmarks

    Read It Later - can also be taken as alternative to Delicious I think. I always mark pages to "read it later" :)

    One solution missing from the list is my company, YourVersion http://yourversion.com. YourVersion is a free real-time discovery engine that lets you discover, bookmark, and share web content (news, blogs, webpages, tweets, and videos) tailored to your specific interests. Making the switch from Delicious is easy. You can easily and instantly import your Delicious bookmarks and tags on the YourVersion site. The import process maintains your public/private settings for each bookmark. And, just like with Delicious, you can bookmark pages directly through the YourVersion website or by using our Firefox toolbar, Chrome extension, Safari extension, or bookmarklet for any browser. In addition to all of our great bookmarking functionality, YourVersion provides a topic-based discovery engine which delivers you the latest, relevant content tailored to your specific interests. We also offer free mobile apps (iPad, iPhone and Android) so you can take YourVersion with you on the go. YourVersion offers a seamless, free transition from Delicious. Check it out at http://yourversion.com to discover your version of the web.
