Yahoo is shutting down Delicious, heralding the end of a tasty era [Updated]

Del.icio.us has lived a long life -- having been around since 2003 -- but Yahoo! has confirmed the demise of the delectable bookmark service. It comes as no surprise after news of the company's recent layoff blitz, and the Delicious team has been on the list of expected victims for well over a year. It's not the only property getting the "sunset" treatment from Yahoo!, either; Yahoo! Picks,...

Delicious boasts redesign, new name

Yesterday, social bookmarkng site Delicious (nee del.icio.us) launched a brand new design and a much easier to remember URL.

Cocoalicious: Browser for Del.icio.us bookmarks

Cocoalicious is a really slick -- but, unfortunately, Mac-only -- dedicated browser for your Del.icio.us bookmarks. If you're a bookmarking junkie, and you have way more sites saved to Del.icio.us than you could ever hope to keep track of, this could be an ideal solution for you. It's laid out a bit like Apple Mail, with your tags running down the left side, your bookmarks on top, and a browser...

Del.icio.us plugin for Internet Explorer

Hot on the heels of the del.icio.us beta plugin for Firefox 3 beta, Yahoo! has released a beta plugin for Internet Explorer. While Firefox is pretty popular these days, we're pretty sure there are still more people using the IE6 or IE7 browser that came with their computer than a beta version of the open source Firefox browser. Which is to say, seriously, Yahoo! is just now getting around to...

Download Squad Week in Review

So without further ado, we bring you some of our favorite stories from the past 7 days: Shady business...

Del.icio.us releases beta browser plugin for Firefox 3

While the Firefox 3 web browser is still in beta, it offers a ton of features that you won't find in Firefox 2.

But there's a downside: many add-ons designed for earlier versions of Firefox will not work with Firefox 3 beta. This week that list got a tiny bit shorter as social...

Ajaxonomy's del.icio.us Spy shows bookmarked sites in real time

Discover what people are looking at with picurls

Picurls collects the all and makes it easy to find some of the most viewed pictures of the day from popular websites. Picurls pulls images from all of the sites we...

Digg's failing democracy

Digg has a problem. What was once a haven of obscure, insightful, and breaking news has become a cesspool of dated headlines, generic brand commentary, and fan-boy-blog spam. What happened? Why do the vast majority of front page links come from "popular" websites who feature a prominent "digg it" button on every article? Is there some conspiracy afloat? Is digg rewarding websites that send them a...
