A couple of days ago, Kevin Rose took the CEO post at Digg and shortly after assuming the post Kevin’s first order of battle was to get rid of the controversial Digg toolbar aka DiggBar. Kevin announced it via the Digg blog:
Framing content with an iFrame is bad for the Internet. It causes confusion when bookmarking, breaks w/iFrame busters, and has no ability to communicate with the lower frame (if you browse away from a story, the old digg count still persists). It’s an inconsistent/wonky user experience, and I’m happy to say we are killing it when we launch the new Digg (sign up for the beta here).
