How to Copy Del.icio.us Bookmarks to Furl. Furl.net is a free service that saves the important items you find on the Web as bookmarks and enables you to quickly find them again. Furl archives a personal copy of every page you save. When you want to recall it, you can find it instantly by searching the full text your archived items.

I opened an account in Furl recently to try its features and it was a difficult task to import all my bookmarks from del.icio.us to Furl.

Firstly…

  • To export your items from delicious go to http://del.icio.us/api/posts/all
  • Enter your username and password. Save the resulting all.xml (XML file) to your computer. That is the file you should use in Furl upload form.

Going to Furl…
Furl has a facility to import your bookmarks, if you have a file with bookmarks available.
Go to My Tools > Import page in Furl.

  • Just browse to locate your file all.xml file and attach it.
  • Check import from del.icio.us
  • And Click ‘import it’

Patiently wait for the next page to upload all your bookmarks. And all your del.icio.us bookmarks are now copied to Furl. Enjoy.
