Delicious.com Relaunches with 1,000-Character Notes Fields
Merlin Mann | Jul 31 2008
In the years since del.icio.us was acquired by Yahoo! it’s been hard to get why it remained such a red-headed stepchild. Despite an unbelievable lead in both mindshare, functionality, and ease-of-use (yeah, it’s been my preferred bookmarker for years), del.icio.us seemed to sit there while a dozen social bookmarking sites lapped it with fancier designs and (mostly superfluous) new features. Yay, Yahoo.
Today Y! revealed a beautiful new version of the site, redubbed Delicious.com. You’ve probably read way too much about this, but I want to highlight exactly one new feature: big, 1000-character notes fields.
This is huge for me as a blog dude, trying to collect links and tidbits for future posts. I can now write an entire short post just in the notes field, with room left over for attribution. See? Awesome.
Congrats to everybody on the relaunch of one of my all-time favorite sites.
