Safari 4 and together?

Do you use Safari and together, successfully? HOW!?

I'm enjoying all aspects of Safari 4 so far, and happy to bid adieu to bloated slow crashy Firefox, but I'm really jonesing for a useful Delicious integration. seems a little (a lot) less than I need. What I need is my bookmark list right there as in the wonderful Firefox Delicious plugin. Any tips?

Safari doesn't actually have extensions, so this doesn't really exist, unfortunately.

You can use bookmarklets to add sites to your account and you can just visit your personal page to access them. See here.

Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't fully read your post. Safari supports drop down RSS bookmarklets, so you can just subscribe to your RSS feed. Info on RSS here and drop-down RSS bookmarklets here.

There are a large number of clients for Mac OS X including Pukka.

joshu's comment earlier about Safari not having extensions is only partially true; while there is no "official" support in Safari for the APIs to tie into bookmarks themselves, there are several extensions for Safari utilizing a tool called SIMBL (which does somewhat unsupported things) - GreaseKit and Inquisitor as examples. I'm not aware of a Safari extension that does functions, but there are a number of browsers which use Safari's rendering engine (WebKit).

Depending on the integration you want, generally I post my bookmarks via Pukka, do live RSS for a specific tag that always includes stuff I want in Safari, and use the web pages for the rest or the search built into Pukka.

You might also want to check out a tool called Fluid but i'm not sure about it's Snow Leopard support yet.

Here's how I work...

I have the safari bookmarklet at the top left of my browser bar in safari. CMD-1 makes a bookmark.

I then have installed safari stand, where I've got a keyword search of my own bookmarks.

So "d askmefi" brings up all my bookmarks posted with the askmefi tag.

Pukka is great, and another third-party client called Delibar (current version; shiny beta) makes your bookmarks searchable from the menu bar, so it's browser-independent. [There's also a thread on the Delicious forums with similar suggestions.]

DeliciousSafari is probably closest to what you're looking for.

Thanks- Pukka + keyboard shortcuts is quite nice. Delibar's beta looks awesome, and I sent in a request.
