Web apps don’t really have version numbers, but if they did, this would be version 2.0 of the Joyent Connector suite. Very nice refinements to the UI, and tremendously improved performance. The new bookmarks app is very well done, including thumbnail screenshots of the pages you bookmark. It’s obvious in hindsight that I should have made bookmarking one of the apps in the original system that debuted last year.
I’m hopelessly biased, of course, because I worked for Joyent for all of 2005 and the beginning of 2006, and I helped design this UI. But if you decide to sign up for a Joyent account, use this affiliate link and 15 percent of your recurring fees go to me. I’ll toss in a free Daring Fireball membership to anyone who signs up for a Joyent account using this.
