Digg to Bury the DiggBar

Recently we talked about Digg’s upcoming relaunch. Today, Kevin Rose, CEO of Digg announced they are going to eliminate the DiggBar for the launch of the new Digg. Search Engine Land reported these comments from Kevin Rose:

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.

Along with the relaunch and DiggBar burial, they will be unbanning all previously banned URL’s. Hooray for SEO’s with banned URL’s!
