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