Digg Teases New Design, Promises One-Click Diggs, Faster Site
The next version of Digg promises a significantly streamlined one-click story submission process -- it's still relatively involved, requiring diggers to add tags, headlines, and descriptions. The speed improvements, described by Digg's Steve French as "blazing," could be a huge improvement for regular users; the site hasn't seen many speed gains over the years. Adelson also detailed how users will no longer need to login to the site: "[for] Digg buttons, you no will longer have to log in to click that Digg button. There will be instant Digging. If you're on another Web site, you click that button, [and] there's no more waiting."
No word yet on when Digg 2.0 will be rolled out, but you can sign up for the alpha (hopefully opening soon) over at digg.com/news [From: DownloadSquad and Digg]
