Delicious first launched in September of 2003 (then known as del.icio.us
) and to celebrate our ten year anniversary we’re sharing a sneak peek of what’s coming next.
We listened to your feedback and rebuilt Delicious from the ground up — adding new features, improving current ones, and even bringing back a few old favorites.
With ten years of bookmarking comes ten years of community-curated links, tags, comments, and bundles — an extremely powerful resource that gets more valuable with every single save. We’re harnessing the nearly one billion links on Delicious into an unparalleled tool for search and discovery.
Quite a bit! The entire site has been streamlined into a single-column layout for faster navigation without any clutter, and we’ve made some other improvements.
Tags and tag bundles are accessible from the top of every page.
Links can be searched or filtered by tag with a single click.
Double click any link to add it to your collection or edit one of your existing bookmarks.
The Discover feed is now personalized. See relevant links from your feed when you connect with Twitter.
Delicious is still all about you. Your links, your tags, your rules. We’ve dusted off the digital archives and brought back a few of oft-requested features, including:
Comprehensive tagging tools, with the ability to add tags to multiple links at once.
Search tags and sort results by recent or popular.
Stats for how often a bookmark has been saved and who was the first to add each link.
Your own personal tag cloud.
What’s to come?
We’re only just getting started. This preview is still in beta and is a work-in-progress. We want to hear your feedback on what you like, what you don’t, and what you want to see from us in the future. In the coming months, we’ll be consistently pushing out new updates, features, apps (yes, Android), browser extensions, and more — so stay tuned!
Thanks to everyone in the community for ten great years of bookmarking.
Here’s to many more!
