Delicious has introduced some new features. These come in the categories of bookmark display options, tag options, and bookmark browsing.

Bookmark display options have been combined into one place - just to the right of the Tagbar, and just beneath the bookmark count. New features here include a privacy filter, a send recipients option, and an "open bookmarks in" option. The privacy filter allows users to filter bookmarks by "only private" or "only public." The send recipients option gives users the ability to either show or hide display info like @twitter and email addresses. Users can also hide the history of who they have sent bookmarks to. The "open bookmarks in" option gives users the option to open bookmarks in either the same window or a new one.

Delicious has moved the tag options out of the blue action box and into the sidebar where the tags are actually listed. The feature is the same as before, just in a new location.

A new feature called "Browse these bookmarks" comes in the form of a link in the action box that lets users open the first bookmark and display a small frame at the top of the page, where they can paginate forward through the bookmarks.

"We're still working on the feature and more functionality will be added over the coming months, but based on how useful we’ve found it, we wanted to give you a chance to start using it sooner rather than later," says Simon on the Delicious blog. "We'd love to get your feedback on this feature and suggestions for other features. We know what we want to add to it, but your responses will help us gauge what we should work on adding next."

Delicious has also improved the tag management functionality on its mobile site and fixed over 50 other minor bugs (which they do not specify). Delicious also promises more tweaks and new features by the end of March, but does not give any details.
