Delicious was acquired from Yahoo’s by AVOS, the new startup created by YouTube founders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen, in April 2011.

AVOS has relaunched Delicious, which they say was “rebuilt from the ground up”. In an interview with AllThingsD, Hurley says Delicious is a great brand that “belongs in Silicon Valley”.

The Delicious team in a blog post stated that: After acquiring the service from Yahoo! in April, we realized that in order to keep innovating over the long term, the eight-year-old site needed to be rebuilt from the ground up. The result is a new homepage, interface and back-end architecture designed to make Delicious easier to use.

Delicious New Flavors…

-Site navigation is simpler, and many redundant features have been consolidated
-Bookmarks are now called links, but they mean the same thing
-Any links previously marked private in Delicious will remain that way
-They’re still supporting all Delicious APIs and feeds, with more on the way
-Multiple-word tagging is now possible (“San Francisco”); tags are separated with commas
-Profile pics are now supported, with more social features to come

The question now is -Will you use the new Delicious bookmarking tool?
