    What do people think of the new website?

    I use the site a lot, so any change will take a while to get used to

    It doesn't look right somehow - not as clear and simple as the old one

    (And too much space for the TV and radio listings I reckon)

    Obviously 'inspired' by the iGoogle homepage, i.e. modular and customisable.

    It has been available in beta for quite some time so I am quite used to it now and wouldn't really want to go back to the old style.

    Actually you're right Dom, thanks - I've now customised it and it looks a lot better

    Haven't explored yet, but looks better. Old page always had that massive white blank bit down the side that used to annoy me. Why didn't they ever put stuff in it?!

    Change for change's sake, like most website redesigns.

    I like it, and have customised it to my own taste. A good investment of licence fee, or wherever they get their money from. ;)

    The news page looked the same to me.

    I no like it. Its going to take a bit of time to jig it to my taste preferred the old layout the TV is so in your face on this one.

    I like it, but I never 'go in through the front door', going directly to news, sport, weather etc. Unless the redesign is carried through the rest of the site, it will be somewhat wasted on me.
     
  10. I've just looked at it for the first time. I like the old style BBC clock in the top right hand corner. ;)

    It's a clear rip off of the google thing...

    It's all good until you clean away all your cookies, then you have to mess about all over again
