Yahoo: Online Bookmark service gets an upgrade

img Yahoo bookmarks 01 Anew version of Yahoo’s online bookmark service is now available. The service allows users to store bookmarks or favorites online to share them on different computers or with others. New features of the service include drag and drop support, folders to organize your bookmarks and improved search functions.

Tags can now be used as well to categorize bookmarks and linked web pages are cached online in case they become inaccessible. Based on the bookmarks stored other links are recommended that might be interesting.

Together with the new version of its bookmark service Yahoo has also upgraded and simplified integration with the Yahoo toolbar for Internet Explorer and Firefox. Users can now add a bookmark with one click to their online collection.

With its new bookmark service Yahoo has taken the next step in quietly transitioning towards Web 2.0 or social networking services while at the same time keeping its mostly mainstream users happy and allowing them to familiarize themselves with new interactive features.

Yahoo claims that it has currently about 20 Million bookmark users plus about 1 Million from the del.icio.us more advanced bookmarking service it has acquired recently. We expect that all three solutions Yahoo is currently providing in that area – del.icio.us, Yahoo MyWeb and Yahoo Bookmarks – to be integrated into one single platform soon. The later two already share some features between each other.
