Looks like it's ahead of schedule. I'm liking the new Digg layout.

 

For the longest time it was neglected and I quit using to promote my online stuff, but going to give it another try.

Digg.com is trying to get back nearly 3/4 users they loss to Reddit. Digg.com went completely downhill after consitently screwing up the functionality of the site and not listening to it's users. I once visited Digg daily, now I've moved to Reddit and never looked back.

The new layout looks great. Wish they implemented it 3-4 years back when they came with awful version 4. Digg never really recovered from that and now it is struggling to survive. Hope the new layout and added functionality will lure people back but it is too early to predict how things will shape out.

I just look a quick look at it. It looks much more professional and well put together than Reddit.com. I haven't used Reddit.com that much either, but between the two, right now I'll be looking at Digg more...

 

I'm glad you mentioned it, I'm always looking for a good source of news input. Thanks!

Admittedly I kind of quit reading Digg right around the time of their redesign. I mainly viewed their articles through a widget on my IGoogle page, but when they stopped supporting that, I couldn't be bothered to go directly to their site on my own.

 

The new layout is OK, but I don't like all the extra space it takes up with images. I much rather preferred the compact list of article titles that I could scan over quickly without having to scroll like crazy down the page. Now they show too much of a preview for each individual article, which makes it a chore to scan the page.
