Google offers bookmarks import tool for Delicious

Google now offers a tool to import bookmarks from Yahoo!’s social bookmarking service Delicious. This way, you can import your contents to Google Bookmarks. The tool also copies your tags and labels. To use the bookmarks import tool, you have to sign in with either your Yahoo! ID account or your old Delicious login.

In late 2010, Yahoo! announced that they want to close several projects. There were rumors that Delicious might be one of them. Few days later, the Delicious operators stated that they don’t want to close down Delicious.

We’re actively thinking about the future of Delicious and we believe there is a home outside the company that would make more sense for the service and our users. We’re in the process of exploring a variety of options and talking to companies right now. And we’ll share our plans with you as soon as we can.
