Delicious today finally unveiled their long awaited “2.0” rehaul — the one they’ve been talking about for a year — at delicious.com. The new version features a faster interface, better search, and an overall new design, which should make Delicious users pretty giddy, although I’m not sure that’s the case seeing how long they had to wait for it.

Among other things, the new design keeps Delicious’ traditional simple and barebones look, although it does implement new elements such as dropdowns and tabs. Like the old one, it still seems a breeze to use, though I’m sure it’s going to take some getting used to. Some of the new features include new ways to sort through bookmarks and generally more “social” feel. Searching also works much better now.

The design seems to be a natural, expected “easier, better, faster” rehaul. While there aren’t any major features introduced, it does make the site better, though I think it might be a year too late. Delicious essentially knows what people like on the web, and I’d love to see them do more Digg-like things, such as recommendations, the ability to “blast” stories to one and other (in a easier way than tagging the other user), etc.

I used to be an avid Delicious user sometime last year. Bookmarking everything cool, using it to collect links, browsing it daily for cool things, the ideal ‘hardcore user.’ For some reason, my interests faded away and my use into services like Digg, Twitter, FriendFeed, and Google Reader. Or maybe it wasn’t me — it seemed like Delicious has been the same since the day it launched, and especially since Yahoo!’s acquisition. Founder Joshua Shachter left the company a few months ago, and much of the excitement seems to be gone from the service. Will the new design be able to revive it?

    According to ComScore, Twitter seems to be catching up with Digg. With this new interface, Digg will have a good chance of maintaining the lead.

    If the play of color in   2011 to brand the most out of color, then   the sub-brand of Marc   Jacobs and Marc by Marc   Jacobs must come   first, no matter the   color, style, are fresh and vibrant, people feel   very cute, Marc Jacobs   bags or Marc by Marc   Jacobs Handbags are you   like and talk   about.
