Digg Makes Changes To DiggBar And Domain UnBanning [news.cnet.com]
More big news out of the Digg camp this week. Late Monday, Digg founder (and now interim CEO) Kevin Rose announced via blog post that the company would be "killing" the DiggBar, the iFrame-based content viewer that caused a lion's share of controversy when it was launched this time last year.

Rose criticized the DiggBar's user experience as "inconsistent" and "wonky," and called the feature "bad for the Internet." According to Rose, the company will instead choose to focus on its browser extensions, which offer many of the same features that could be found in the DiggBar. Rose said Digg will overhaul these add-ons in a few months.

Along with the removal of the DiggBar, Digg plans to un-ban all domains that have been banned in the past. This could open up the site to a lot of junk, but Rose said that a set of "automated filters" will catch items that violate the site's terms of service.

The best thing about the Digg bar was that they let you switch it off. I did that from day-one.
