Stumbleupon.com launched a new beta interface tonight. I just noticed the change when I stumbled a few pages.
I was playing around with the new interface and I have to say that I like it. It is IMO much more intuitive to use. It also looks much more organized and overall better and more visually appealing. For people who prefer the old look and feel exists the option to switch back to the old interface and back. I doubt that many people will actually do that.
I did it once to be able to take some screen shots that show the same page with the old and the new interface. Once I was done with them, did I return it to the new look and leave it like that.

Stubleupon is a good and often underestimated source of traffic to your site. I also use it myself to discover new content on the internet. Virtually everything Stumbleupon selects and redirects me to is content I like. Professionally relevant content as well as personal stuff I just like. Less than a handful of pages from hundreds of stumbled pages did I not like. I use Stumbleupon as much to promote my own content and content I think is good as I do to discover new content, I would probably not come across without it.
The new and improved interface is another good reason to check it out.
