DiggBar Released Today And Oh How Sweet It Is.

Annnd it works! This is amazing and will likely change the way Diggers Digg. Literally all you have to do, on any website is type the words “digg.com/” before the url and press enter. Magically, the DiggBar glides down below the address bar, allowing you to digg the story, share is as a short url, and view the comments. You can also see the total number of views globally. That’s right, views not diggs. So far it’s been fun, I’m a daily Digger for example, but I rarely submit. The DiggBar makes it so easy it’s hard not too. Here’s one I just sent in: http://digg.com/comics_animation/Super_Mario_Meets_Star_Wars_Art

This will change Digg for the better. More info:

The DiggBar allows you to…

  • Digg directly on the destination site: No more awkward toggling between the story page and Digg.
  • Easily share stories: You can now create a shortened Digg URL to share on Twitter, Facebook or via email. You can also type digg.com/ before the URL of any page you’re on to create a short URL.
  • Access additional analytics: See how many times a story has been viewed.
  • View comments while on the story page: Clicking the ‘Comments’ button expands the DiggBar to show the top comment, latest comment, and most controversial without leaving the page.
  • Discover related stories: Clicking the ‘Related’ button expands the DiggBar to highlight similar stories.
  • See more stories from the same source: Clicking the ‘Source’ button expands the DiggBar to show you more Digg stories from that source site.
  • Discover random stories: Click the ‘Random’ button and you’ll be brought to an entirely new, unexpected story.
