      conveyor of Internet memes and trends. Delicious is one of the most popular social
      bookmarking services. Many features have contributed to this, including the website's simple
      interface, human-readable URL scheme, a novel domain name, a simple REST-like API, and
      RSS feeds for web syndication.
      Use of Delicious is free. The source code of the site is not available, but a user can download
      his or her own data through the site's API in an XML or JSON format, or export it to a standard
      Netscape bookmarks format. All bookmarks posted to Delicious are publicly viewable by
      default, although users can mark specific bookmarks as private, and imported bookmarks are
      private by default. The public aspect is emphasized; the site is not focused on storing private
      ("not shared") bookmark collections.[4] Delicious linkrolls, tagrolls, network badges, RSS
      feeds, and the site's daily blog posting feature can be used to display bookmarks on weblogs.

      BlackBerry, and a web-based client for when no local client is installed. Dropbox uses the
      Freemium financial model and its free service provides 2 GB of free online storage. The
      Dropbox client enables users to drop any file into a designated folder that is then synced with
      Dropbox's web service and to any other of the user's computers and devices with the Dropbox
      client. Users may also upload files manually through a web browser.Through these usages, it
      can be an alternative to couriering physical removable media, and other traditional forms of file
      transfer, such as FTP and e-mail attachments.[14] While Dropbox functions as a storage
      service, its focus is on synchronization and sharing. It supports revision history, so files
      deleted from the Dropbox folder may be recovered from any of the synced computers.
      Dropbox's version control also helps users know the history of a file they may be currently
      working on, enabling more than one person to edit and re-post files without complications of
      losing its previous form.
