Delicious shuts down, Netvouz opens up

Past Friday we started getting lots of requests for new accounts at Netvouz. We do have a continous stream of requests but Friday it was significantly more than usual. After a while we realized why - Yahoo is shutting down Delicious (which, for those of you who don't know, is the biggest and busiest social bookmarking service around). So we decided to open up our self registration service and welcome all Delicious refugees into the warm cosy Netvouz cottage. We have automatic import of Delicious bookmarks and such so the check-out from Delicious and check-in to Netvouz is painless.

Today we disabled self-registration again... So many spammers that just opens new accounts and starts auto-posting junk links. As you know we strive to keep Netvouz always available, free from spam, and to give you fast page load times. Millions of junk links just make life so much harder for us.

So for everyone who really wants an account at Netvouz, and who do not plan to use it for spamming, please drop us an email (info is at our Contact page), and we'll be glad to set it all up for you.

Google Chrome extension for Netvouz

John Pedersen, the developer of the Firefox extension for Netvouz, has switched to the Google Chrome browser. A great browser but something was lacking - no integration with his favorite online bookmark manager. So he decided to develop an extension for Google Chrome as well. We have now been testing this for a while and it's working really well.

Anyone using Google Chrome should go to Chrome extension for Netvouz and install it. When installed a single Netvouz icon appears in the upper right corner. Clicking it reveals two buttons; one for quickly accessing your Netvouz bookmarks page and another for adding new bookmarks.

Many many thanks to John for his work on this!

Netvouz adds Google Chrome support

Today we added support for Google Chrome as a browser to Netvouz. Some early adopters of Chrome have noticed that the Netvouz menu system has not worked well (or not worked at all, to be honest...) with Chrome. That's fixed now.

There are yet no Chrome plugin for saving bookmarks to Netvouz as there is for Firefox, but using the standard Bookmarklets works well. To install them select Tools -> Browser buttons when you have signed in to Netvouz and follow the instructions.

Happy bookmarking!
