I’ve just now gone to look at the del.icio.us page for Standardista Table Sorting to see if anyone new has del.icio.us’ed the article today (yes, I am that needy), and to my surprise the URL page has been very nicely revamped.
Gone is the huge vertical list detailing every single person who has ever delished the page and all the tags that they each used. Gone is the need to search through the list to find your entry huddled up somewhere in the middle, fighting for air. Things have suddenly become a lot clearer.
Now, when you look at the page for a del.icio.us’ed URL, you see your entry right at the top of the page, in pride of place. Underneath it is a reverse chronological list of all the user comments that the URL has received, along with who wrote them. If a user del.icio.us’ed a page but didn’t make a comment then they don’t appear here. This on its own makes it a lot easier to see what people have been saying, and gain a quick overview of what public opinion of a page is.
At the right of the del.icio.us URL page is a section holding the common tags for the URL, with more commonly used ones in a larger font. Immediately, it’s nice and easy to see what the “important” tags for a page are, which is nice. Under this is a section containing related pages (del.icio.us still doesn’t think anything is related to Standardista Table Sorting, ho hum), followed by a big old list of all the people who del.icio.us’ed this page.
I like this new URL page. It’s a vast improvement over the old one, and I look forward to seeing more nice iterative changes like this soon.
If you really enjoyed what you just read, why not buy yourself something from Amazon? You get something nice for yourself, and I get a little bit of commission to pay for servers and the like. Everyone's a winner!
