Yesterday, social bookmarkng site Delicious (nee del.icio.us) launched a brand new design and a much easier to remember URL. The redesign is quite similar to the preview posted last September, Nothing like waiting until your share holders stage a revolt to get your properties updated, eh Yahoo?
The new design is fluid and clean, with a much nicer display system. It’s much easier to switch between your own bookmarks and the “popular” and “most recent” listings. Sorting and searching through tags is also much more efficient and intuitive.
In addition to the new design, of which I’m a fan, the site is also significantly faster, both in terms of search and overall navigation. Although the Firefox 3 plugin is fantastic, the old site design and loading time made it a chore if accessed in Safari or any other browser without a specific plugin or tool.
