I decided to finally make a Delicious account.

When I did, the site prompted me to add the Firefox Delicious add-on. I figured okay, that'll add a Delicious button to my toolbar. Sure! So I did.

It added three buttons to my toolbar.

It also added three buttons to my status bar, a sidebar which immediately opened and pinned itself, another toolbar and a Delicious-specific menu.

I don't think I'm ready for this age.

That happened to me when I got Delicious for Safari. It freaked me out, so I stopped using it, lol.

LOL. So glad to know I'm not the only one fazed by this. I felt a little like I might be the only person left in the world (well, not really, but you know) who would think that something you download on the internet adding all that to your browser might be a sign that the machines are taking over.

Although I did quickly discover I can hide the toolbar and close the sidebar. Otherwise, I don't mind the menu or the buttons.

Overkill much? I would uninstall it.

First off, that icon is awesome.

As for the add-on, well, I can close the sidebar and hide the toolbar. Those are the things that bug me most. The rest is mostly just buttons, which I wanted in the first place, so...

And it even gives you the option to switch to "Classic mode" (like an older version), which I think is just the buttons. This is the sooped-up version designed specifically for the newest version of Firefox. Looks like Firefox worked with Delicious on this, since it's the "official" version and recommended on the Firefox site.

Funnily enough, it's actually just about the smallest add-on I've got yet. Curious to know how they kept it so small - I guess because Delicious bookmarks are actually stored online, there's not that much to what is added to your browser, space-wise.

So yeah. It really freaked me out how much it appeared to do so effortlessly, but I guess it's not that strange if Delicious and Firefox worked together to design it. I mean, there's add-ons out there that will apparently make your internet 3D and make sites look like shops in malls. (Which strikes me as both totally cool and the most pointless thing I've ever heard of.)

Next time, I will be reading the fine print more closely, though. Heh.
