Review of delicious

delicious Reviewed 10 Aug 2009 · Average score 88%


Despite one or two labels missing and the choice of how to search which does not appear in the text version most of the site is very accessible and keyboard navigable. It is easy to sign in and bookmarks are added with plain text forms. Some menu buttons have low contrast levels but on the whole the site is easy to read and zooms well
