What’s new with Delicious?

You asked, we listened! We’ve heard all your feedback after our survey 4 months ago and put our efforts forward to increase your Delicious experience.

Going ad-free

We know how annoying ads can be, but we are a business and want to keep serving you, so we’ve offered a paid delicious membership that’s ad-free!  No advertisements will appear on any page that you visit on Delicious or share from your Delicious account. Delicious daily e-mails will also be ad-free and advertisers will not have any visibility into your Delicious activity.

Our premium membership also includes quarterly voting, where users can voice opinions to help and recommend us with any upcoming features.

Fixing Feeds

We are making a change to our service offering to handle the increase in feed traffic over the last few years. Thanks to the hard work of our technical team, we’re still able to offer the feeds for free to all, but effective this week, there are a few limitations.

First, we cannot continue to serve them for free over HTTPS, but we can over plain HTTP.

Second, feed data needs to be cached, or changes to the your links will be delayed when the feed is requested.

If either of these is a problem, or you’re looking for a way to help out Delicious, we’d love to invite you to beta test the premium feed by e-mailing support@delicious.com for the beta url.

Revocable Email

Delicious also now offers a whole new way to enhance your everyday communication through our new service, Dmail. Dmail, is a chrome extension available to all users, that allows you to send private, self destructing email from your Gmail account. Enhancing the old with something newer and better is what we’re all about. The idea for Dmail came from our own personal experience sending and trying to protect sensitive information via email. Our core belief is that the sender should own the content of their email, and more specifically, access to it. The recipient should currently be able to view the content of the email in the browser without having to install the chrome extension. The Dmail extension is only necessary if you want to send a Dmail.

We’re still early in our product process, but we built this tool out of a pain many of us have experienced and we hope it makes life easier for you as well!

Thanks again!

At Delicious, we are constantly working on bigger and better things to serve you. A few months ago we completed a migration to a faster more efficient platform. We also added a support system, AVOS, that Delicious didn’t have before. All these updates are only the beginning of all the great things we are determined to offer our users. As a business that was born out of feedback, we are always eager to hear more, so if you have any questions, concerns or comments please contact us at feedback@delicious.com.
