Until the release of Yahoo! Query Language, one of the key parts missing from del.icio.us (or "Delicious," as it's now branded) was a full-text search API. What follows uses YQL, Pipes, and a couple of native feeds from Delicious to provide an on-page search-and-browse experience, for users, tags, and sites.
Things to Do and Notice
The initial search defaults to "yahoo." Enter something else--"Luke Wroblewski" gives interesting results--and hit Enter to re-run.
Results show the page, the first user to bookmark it, and some tags. Click the page to visit the page; click the tag or user to open a new search box.
To re-run the search against tags or users, change the value in the select box.
As you open new searches, all the users and tags you encounter will build up in their respective boxes.
As you run searches or click tags and users, they will go into a special set of boxes up top, to help keep track of things.
To visit any search term, tag, or user on Delicious, open (or find) their search box and click the "see on del.icio.us" link in the header.
To visit a page, click its title. Notice that it also opens in the "page on del.icio.us" box; click the title there to visit the detailed entry for that page on del.icio.us.
