A Delicious Purchase

After announcing that it was giving up on Delicious, Yahoo has finally found a buyer for the bookmarking tool in the form of YouTube founders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen. Delicious, has millions of users around the world, was launched in 2003 and bought by Yahoo! in 2005.

I have always liked Delicious but gave up on it a few months ago after all the uncertainty and swapped to Google bookmarking. I think that many people also moved away, and it even lost its spot in popurls.

AVOS chief executive Hurley said in a statement"We're excited to work with this fantastic community and take Delicious to the next level," Hopefully its new owners will bring it back to life again.
