Delicious announced that it has added some new features after remaining quite for a while. For one, you can now log in with Facebook or Twitter.

"Login with a single click and immediately start adding links," Delicious says in a blog post. "But that’s not the only benefit of connecting your social accounts. We can also automatically pull in links you’ve shared (or favorited on Twitter), meaning you’ll never have to dig through your feed to find a link again – they will all be waiting for you on your Delicious account, indexed and searchable. We’ve also introduced the Friend Finder to help you find and follow the people you know."

They've also started putting the user who first saved a link back in the link details pane. This was a big community request, Delicious says. It's now prominently displayed on every link added to the site.

Other new stuff includes a bug fix where public tags were showing up in autocomplete when tagging, the addition of the "Add to Delicious" button on the Tools page, faster load times, and an optimized (for speed) bookmarklet.

Delicious says to expect more improvements soon.

The new 'new' delicious launched in November with another redesign. Shortly thereafter came the iPhone app.
