Digg to do away with its software-free toolbar in upcoming version of site. The news comes within hours of Digg's CEO Jay Adelson stepping down.
The DiggBar is no more--for unregistered users that is. The company has turned it into an opt-in experience in response to user and media backlash.
Company also is removing URL shortening and Web page-framing service from anonymous Digg usage and letting registered users turn it off completely.
