The popular social bookmarking site delicious relaunched today with a new design. It took almost one year to launch delicious 2.0 i don’t why it took this long for them to launch a new design.
Along with the design the name is also changed, there are no dots in the name it just reads delicious.com, new domain name means you have to login to the service once again to set the cookies.
Weâ€™ve seen a zillion different confusions and misspellings of â€œdel.icio.usâ€ over the years (for example, â€œde.licio.usâ€, â€œdel.icio.us.comâ€, and â€œdel.licio.usâ€), so moving to delicious.com will make it easier for people to find the site and share it with their friends. Of course the old del.icio.us domain and all its URLs will continue to work.
Yahoo says this new delicious is “just like the old del.icio.us, only faster, easier to learn, and hopefully more delightful to use and to look at.”
Speed: Weâ€™ve moved to a new infrastructure that makes every page faster. This new platform will enable us to keep up with traffic growth while ensuring Delicious is responsive and reliable. You may not have noticed, but the old back-end was getting creaky under the load of five million users.
Search: Weâ€™ve completely overhauled our search engine to make it faster and more powerful. Searches used to take ages to return results; now theyâ€™re very quick. The new search engine is also smarter, and more social: you can search within one of your tags, another userâ€™s public bookmarks, or your social network. Now itâ€™s easier to take advantage of the expertise and interests of your friends, not to mention the Delicious community at large.
Design: Finally, weâ€™ve updated the user interface to improve usability and add a few often-requested features (such as selectable detail levels and alphabetical sorting of bookmarks). Our goal has been to keep the new design similar in spirit to the old one, so all of you veterans should be able to jump in without any confusion. At the same time, weâ€™re hoping that newcomers to Delicious will find it easier to learn.
The design looks good and due to the domain change we are saved from misspelling the delicious, but i wonder how many people are still going daily to delicious after installing delicious browser add-ons.
