THE NEW CNET WEBSITE REALLY SUCKS

by calvin5 / March 31, 2013 3:58 AM PDT

CNET was my nr 1 site that I visited practically every day until recently. The main two things that is most discouraging is the infernal advertisement pop up that slides in from the left of the screen. I have to click on hide every time I enter the site.
the next thing is the softwares ability to get more stories at the end of the feature I click on more (plus sign) and the page just sits there and looks at me I have to restart the browser to make it work. what gives CNET ????

I see nothing sliding in here. Maybe you should check for virus/malware/adware etc.

mod mod mod, never satisfied,

I see exactly the same issue, on my "mobile devices",,,, cnets web design is not mobile frendly, like now, ive got the sliding ads and banner, ive seen this same issue resolved since 2010/12,

I guess cnet has opted to add a TON OF FLUFF(to the Xtreme),,,,

And why do websites have to constantly mod mod mod tweak tweak tweak, never ever just resting the design upon cross platforming that works well?

Id imagine web masters/designers want to always be working and have a steady flow of work, so, mod mod mod, but for the better? Usually not!

Like the latest netflix, for "PC", wow, it used to be very easy to navigate etc, now its just a mess and they will never admit defeat so they just keep at it, "hacking and stacking" till it is just a hassle to use!?!?

No clues to go on. Are you using an app that may be ad supported?

not mobile frendly at all anymore; and why BIG RED BANNER?
by etoolz65 / January 15, 2016 10:18 PM PST

Yes, it does for sure, the banner enlarges along with text as u try to enlarge page, cutting off the text, and making it hard to screen qwerty,,, even on my 8 and 10 inch tabs it's impossible to navigate very well; my 6 inch fone is rendered useless, like now im on my 8 inch and the text is very very small, to try to enlarge text means big red banner with menu for cnet will just enlarge over text, it is obvious it is not actually mobile friendly, which is why it has been far and few between visits here and only wen i need to, oh well, theres other sites which are mobile/droid broswer frendly,,,,
