If you're using the FireFox browser, you will probably find the delicious Bookmarks Add-on extremely useful.
One of the features of the add-on is that it synchronizes your delicious bookmarks with bookmarks in your local browser. When you launch the add-on for the first time, it will invite you to upload the bookmarks in your browser to delicious. After that, the add-on will sync your links whenever you open the browser.
Having the links in the browser, too, allows for fast searching. Click Apple+b (on a Mac) or Control+b (on a PC) and you'll get a quick search side-bar. Apple/Control+d will open the bookmarking dialog. Control+click (Mac) or right-click (PC) when your cursor is hovering over a link will pull up a context menu that will now include an option to bookmark the link in delicious even before you've opened it.
One word of caution about importing bookmarks from your browser into delicious: Some browsers come with large libraries of preset bookmarks that you may never use or even know about. If you import your browser bookmarks indiscriminately into delicious, you may find that your account contains hundreds of bookmarks that you don't care about.
