I’ve been using Furl as a social bookmarking tool for a few years but the RSS feed has not worked since September 2006. I decided to try to transfer my Furl archive (+800) to del.icio.us. I used the export as Mozilla bookmarks function in Furl and then saved the page as an HTML file on my desktop. In del.icio.us, I used the import/upload function and uploaded the file. It worked quite well and saved my files with their tags. One glitch was that all of my imported bookmarks were marked private and I had to individually change the settings to public. The other problem was that del.icio.us only imported about 500 of the bookmarks. However, I have most of my bookmarks in del.icio.us and will be using it as my primary tool for sharing web pages because it seems to be more collaborative and the RSS feed works.
