A New boston.com

The new Boston.com

I just noticed that boston.com launched a redesigned site, and it looks very nice. You can read the editor’s redesign note here.

The new look is much wider, open, and eas­i­er to read. The Globe page espe­cial­ly shines, though they could bet­ter dis­trib­ute some of the paper’s con­tent across the columns. (And, I wish that they’d ditch the awful curvy logo for some­thing less whim­si­cal.)

Some sec­tions on the site remain unchanged for now – which, accord­ing to the redesign FAQ, was inten­tion­al:

Dif­fer­ent fea­tures and sec­tions of the site are sched­uled to debut on dif­fer­ent days. While we real­ize that this might be con­fus­ing in the short-term, we’ve stud­ied our options care­ful­ly and believe that the grad­ual switch we have planned will ulti­mate­ly result in a bet­ter user expe­ri­ence.

Err, or that was a lot to roll out at once. Still, great improve­ment.
