So I read on techcrunch.com that delicio.us 2.0 launched. Apparently the new site is: 1. faster 2. easier to learn with an 3. updated, simpler interface. Awesome!
I took a trip over to the site, and indeed the UI is updated and simple. But something about it looked VAAAAAUGELY familiar. And it hit me.
Aside from the obvious differences -header image, tags, and search fields.
Look at the similarities:
1. Both sites have tabbed pages
2. Both site have user votes
3. Both have unique log-ins AND free to sign up! :)
Delicious 2.0 launched its preview site in September… 2007. That’s almost nine months ago. A whole human being is developed in nine months!
It took Chris 5 minutes to build his site, on http://slinkset.com. And um, Chris’ site is made specifically for the.. iPhone. The layout is the way it is, so it’s easy to navigate from mobile Safari…..
It took Delicious this long to well… launch that?
Then I realized: Delicious could be PURE genius. With the redesign, they don’t need two style sheets!! They just need that ONE site for easy iPhone access. They might have something, and be TOTALLY ahead of the game! HA
What do you think of the redesign? Do you use Delicious? If not, what bookmarking site do YOU use?
