A Flickr user and Digg beta tester posted the above screenshot of the toolbar in development by the 900-lb. gorilla of link-sharing services. It’s JavaScript-based, offers Twitter-style URLs, and meant for hardcore Diggers. As you can see in the upper-right, the Digg toolbar, which should work with any modern browser, offers a StumbleUpon-like “Random” button to take you to a new, popular-on-Digg page, based in part on your own past Digg activity. And social network sharing links are ready to roll as well.

It’s obviously not something a casual Digg voter would get into, but would having a random Digg pointer make the link-voting site worth your free time? Cast your votes, and impressions, in the comments.
