Today del.icio.us became delicious.com as the infamous bookmarking website’s excellent new design went live. The long awaited redesign looks streamlined and incorporates fast loading ajax features that simplifies use.
“The 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.”
A short animation was also published to illustrate the differences between the old del.icio.us and the redesign:
A year in Beta
This redesign has been in the pipeline for over a year and early previews gave a clear indication of what was to be expected of the new site. However the aforementioned blog post by The Delicious Team also indicated that new features are in development and may be added in the near future.
“It has taken us a while to get here, and we really appreciate all the patience and support you’ve shown us. Now that our new platform is in place we expect to release new features more quickly.”
For more information about the changes take a look at the Delicious What’s New page.

“Hmm, now I can’t access it from work because the network nannies think delicious.com is a porn site. Anyone else having this problem?”
