Mister Wong Comes to USA

I like competition because we, as consumers benefit directly from it. I especially like the new competition to del.icio.us, the popular social online bookmarking service.

Mister-Wong.de has been hugely popular in Europe and I have been in their closed-beta for over a month. I was really excited because I have been looking for a better interface than del.icio.us and Mister Wong came very close to it.

On August 2, Mister-Wong.com was officially launched and opened the doors for everyone to join.

You can read how I used this trick to make del.icio.us actually taste good here.

If you use del.icio.us or myYahoo, some of the features mentioned below might not be new to you. But, I am listing here for the benefit of anyone wanting to try an online social bookmarking service.

Quick Facts
