Oishii!

Yet another del.icio.us ? "One of the main purposes of social bookmarking systems is allowing people to see what other people are bookmarking. I frequently find things that people are linking to very interesting, and thought it would be nice to slap together a system that could tell me, automatically, what lots of other people have just bookmarked. Thus, oishii was born".

Nah not another del.icio.us, "Oishii is kind of a del.icio.us mini-zeitgeist. oishii! polls the del.icio.us front page every 15 minutes, and returns all sites bookmarked by at least 30 people"

Well, no. It's just the del.icio.us front page, filtered by link popularity. Which I guess might be interesting if you're bored and just looking for links.

"Oishii", of course, being the Japanese for "delicious."

Del.icio.us has a popular links page with better metadata. That page has its own RSS feed. So Oishii is a weaker version of one Del.icio.us feature, albeit with a sexier design. It's more a personal project than a tool for the public. Note that it's run by a tiny portal.

10 points for style, Trillian, but minus a couple million for good thinking.

Wow. Link number 2 = deja vu.

That answers this question.

I do, however, have my own online bookmark manager: Scuttle.

It isn't that long up, but it has most of the features you'd expect from one of these things and a few -- like privacy settings and watch lists -- that others don't currently have.

I'm a big fan of Furl myself, primarily for the the "Save a Copy of Page" feature. To my knowledge, no other social bookmarking service offers this feature.

Well, Spurl stores the pages as well... though Furl seems a bit more mature...
