Share and Bookmark

I really like the solution that Bombia Design features on their company blog to combat the proliferation of 'Digg This' 'Save to Del.icio.us' options that are plaguing many sites these days.

I suppose one easy way to combat the problem would be to abstain from placing those buttons altogether, but—barring that—this is the next best thing that I've found. A single, simple link that says 'Share and Bookmark.' When clicked, a whizzy litle div drops down with two pulldowns:

Bombia 'Share and Bookmark'

The 'Share With' options are Digg, Slashdot, Reddit, Fark & Newsvine. Your only bookmarking options are Ma.gnolia and de.licio.us. I really like the fact that they've opted out of displaying any overt branding for the various sites supported (that whole 'chiclet soup' look.) I don't like the way that I get javascript errors when I try to use any of the options... but the design is great.
