Kevin Rose: First Order As Digg CEO, Remove Web Toolbar and Unban Sites

Posted Apr 6, 2010

On the Digg blog, Kevin Rose has reported that they are getting rid of the DiggBar. “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),” stated Rose. “It?s an inconsistent/wonky user experience, and I?m happy to say we are killing it when we launch the new Digg.”

Rose also said that the company will be unbanning domains. There will be automated filters to prevent malware and viruses, but there will be no more restrictions on content. This is great news for websites that are considered to be blacklisted by Digg.
