A Netscape employee An industrious East-Coaster has put together a bookmarklet that allows you to save to Reddit, Digg, Netscape, and Del.icio.us with one click. This is essential, as there are way too many social bookmarking sites out there. I can see why Netscape wanted this, because if they can get people submitting to Netscape along with the “Top 3” then they might generate enough users and traffic to meet their lofty goals of competing with Digg.
