How do you del.icio.us?

del.icio.us strikes me as a great concept, but I just can’t get a grip on how best to use it. I have a functional, regularly trimmed set of bookmarks for Firefox (I don’t really use IE much) which serves me fine. Some people seem to store a hell of a lot of stuff on del.icio.us, which can’t possibly be reflective of their bookmarks in general.
What I’m looking for is suggestions on how best to leverage the power of del.icio.us. Hit me.

    The problem with del.icio.us is that its search isn’t very good. Tags can be good way of organizing and finding information, but you need a good search. That said, have a look at Simpy, as it has a number of advantages over del.icio.us.
