The Beta version was launched in December for Test. Everyone has given a positive feedback on the new design and functionality.
Don’t like reading Sports news – push that module down or remove it complete from the home page. Think the color scheme is too simple, pick a different one from the presets. Want more news from South Asia – you can set that as a preference.
The site is more IE friendly and there were a few rough edges while making customizations inside Firefox.
Nevertheless, the new design is beautiful and very usable. This year we will probably see some more prominent news website following the BBC model.
