NY Times Redesign

Posted in Technology at 10:06 am by antonello

Atrios may not like it, but I like the new NY Times site.  The site makes much better use of the whole screen.  As soon as a user brings up the site, you can get more headlines.  The variable size of fonts and multiple columns allow readability.   It’s also more consistent with the physical paper which helps branding.  Seeing entries that have been most blogged about is a nice touch that hopefully will introduce new readers to the blogs.  The top nav, geared towards users gives options about different ways to approach the content on the site.  It reminds me a bit of CJR Daily, but NY Times is easier to read.
