I’m testing out the new beta of del.icio.us extension for bookmarking in Internet Explorer, and it’s a lot better than what was available before. One interesting thing that I noticed, thought, is the way it stores data locally. From my quick search, I found this:
C:\Users\<user_name>\AppData\LocalLow\Delicious IE Extension\bookmarks.db
I tried opening it up in SQLiteExplorer, and this is what I got. del.icio.us is definitely using SQLite for their extension.
That’s great for SQLite, but I think the extension still needs some work. Some tags aren’t being registered correctly. Synchronizing between del.icio.us and the extension also needs some improvements. I found myself retagging some items I already tagged.
