Delicious 2.0 Is Now Without Dots
Delicious has finally unveiled their new site design. This was scheduled to release long ago, but due to some problems it didn’t.
Delicious 2.0 is now finally released for public. First change that you will notice is that the old del.icio.us has moved to a new domain Delicious.com now. Now it’s much easier for users to remember the name.
When I checked the new domain earlier today, it redirected to the old del.icio.us. But now the new site is live and is open for public. Delicious has focused on three things, speed, search and design. According to the official blog post:
- Speed: WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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: WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve completely overhauled our search engine to make it faster and more powerful. Searches used to take ages to return results; now theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re very quick. The new search engine is also smarter, and more social: you can search within one of your tags, another userÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s public bookmarks, or your social network. Now itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s easier to take advantage of the expertise and interests of your friends, not to mention the Delicious community at large.
- Design: Finally, weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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.
Let me know your views on the new Delicious design!
