Amazing Digg Tools Collection

Looking for Digg tools, hacks and services for a powerful Digg experience? Digg is a technology news website that combines social bookmarking, blogging, RSS, and non-hierarchical editorial control. With digg, users submit stories for review, but rather than allow an editor to decide which stories go on the homepage, the users do and thereafter Digg can act as an online traffic generator for your link.

    Here is Firefox sidebar I made for digg. USE THE LINK (don’t save) because it’s still in “beta” and I am working on many more features that will be added soon.

    Remember! Set the link to ONLY open in Firefox’s sidebar.
