After launching Delicious Surf, first thing you'll notice about is that it doesn't show any navigation bar. Instead of a rich GUI, it comes with keyboard bindings. The most important one is ctrl+g which opens the URL bar as seen below.
As you see, URL bar is also a search bar. You can query your history and use some special keywords to search the web. See "Search Engines" section for details.
Besides of safety of your links, offline copy makes quite faster to query your bookmarks. ctrl+b opens a bookmarking bar that helps you to search your bookmarks by tags and keywords.
If you don't see any bookmark on the bookmark bar, repeat the synchronization step of the installation.
To add a bookmark, Press ctrl+d and type your tags by pressing Shift+Enter after each one. It supports auto-completion but Delicious' suggestion API is currently broken. Press ESC button when you're done.
