SMH redesigns

The Sydney Morning Herald website has a new design… and I’m not sure I like it. It’s just way too wide, and there just seems to be too much going on horizontally with all those columns. I like the addition of the search box though, and the navigation redesign makes much more sense. (Though it doesn’t seem to be completely finished. I was happy to see that Column 8 and Spike have been moved out from under the National section – which never made any sense to me – but if you go to either section, the breadcrumb trail on top still thinks that’s where they are. Weird.)

  1. Yeah, the Age has also adopted the same new design and it looks completely messed up on Explorer for Mac 🙁

  2. Yeah, SMH looked funny using Mozilla too, with images way down the bottom of the page.

    I had to spend a few seconds looking for the text version too – that link moved.

  3. I’m just annoyed because in order to see anything, I have to surf with my browser window completely maximised. As I have a huge monitor at home (but my iBook only runs it at 1028), that means the damn site practically ends up larger than the printed paper.

  4. I don’t like the 3 column thing going on. The page is just too busy.
