Google going after del.icio.us?

A while ago Google introduced a personalised search service. I'm actually too paranoid about the amount of information Google now holds about me to actually use the service, but apparently they have now added tagging to the bookmark section.


Google's personalised search service

Having had a look around the new additions, I think del.icio.us still has an edge, in my view it's properly Web 2.0, despite not being an AJAX application, because it has open API. If there isn't an API, how do we build mash-ups?

Update: Looks like Dion Almaer just spotted the same article as I did, and he makes some good points. This would be a lot more useful if they allowed you to tag your search history rather than your bookmarks. It still needs an open API though...
