Well the new Del.icio.us website debuted today (31/07/2008) and I like it. However, there is one thing that I noticed that was missing is unbundled tags – a number of other users have noticed (see here and here). Granted the improvements to Del.icio.us have been coming for a long time now, and its just a matter of getting used to the design of the site. And I really don’t like the fact that I would need to look for stuff that I knew before the update and would spend a little while longer on the site to find things.
Though spending time on a website isn’t really a big deal for me, I just don’t like the fact of doing a “treasure hunt” for items that I could easily find on the old site. Just need to get used to the new site … in time.
But in the end if updating the back end/front end of a site to make things faster, run much more smoothly and the design of the site doesn’t bother the end user to or that much … so much for the better.
Just my 2 cents….
Note: this post may be edited at some point but don’t know at this time. I intended this to be posted last night but wanted to revise this post some more before posting this before the public.
I’ve recently came across Diigo by the way of a post over at Borderland. It seems an interesting site, enough to try it, even though I really don’t like the clutter of the site. Another problem that I have a problem with is with the after effects of the import of my del.icio.us bookmarks, though I was expecting a few tags and links to get lost during the import into Diigo.
One feature that I like about Diigo is that I could actually have links posted to my blogs, as with del.icio.us, nothing gets posted to any of my blogs – no matter how I try to get things work. I guess I could live with that for a while longer.
Though, I’m going to see how Diigo works out during the mean time. Del.icio.us is still my default online bookmarking site.
This is sure a development of Yahoo buying up del.icio.us. I just hope that it would stay ad free, and also keep the current look and feel to it that it has now. I Found the story at news.com: Yahoo gobbles up Del.icio.us | CNET News.com
Just hope that yahoo doesn’t require or “merge” the user databases together like what their doing with flickr members. If they do, hope it wouldn’t be for a while. But hey anything possible at this point.
I was noticing earlier tonight (11/21/2005) that del.icio.us – from what I could tell added new feature recently or I’ve just never noticed some stuff before. Maybe the later because I’ve been looking around del.icio.us’s site for a while. Another thing that I’ve noticed to today was the cleaner/nicer design of the general look of del.icio.us today – which makes it look a lot better in many ways. But then its what I think about del.icio.us.
