del.icio.us is fantastic, but I found the Firefox extension too restrictive.
 It completely replaces the FF bookmark system (tho I suppose suppresses is
a better word, since all your old bookmarks are still there, and disabling
the extension returns the FF system to your browser).  I couldn't create
folders in my Bookmarks Toolbar, something I rely on to save space, and
using tags was a bit too unwieldy, especially after it had imported my 10
years worth of bookmarks and automagically tagged them :)
