I finally got this nailed, and I am impressed.
I have started importing all my old favourites and tagging them all to make for easy access and sharing.
Added the RSS feed into my netvibes.net homepage and I now have my bookmarks on the go where ever I am.
A great feature of del.icio.us is the ability to "subscribe" to a certain tag - so anyone else's bookmarks with this tag will arrive in your inbox for you to view and save to your own.
This allows you to "bypass" search engines and find sites related to what you want found by other people - sort of like a people's web index/ search engine.
