General discussion

I used to check out the CNET home page every day...

... but since the remodel a few months ago, I have switched to looking at the news and headlines once or twice a month, if at all. I have experienced the same personal trend on CNN and the BBC home page too. I just don't like the graphic design approach most of these sites have adopted.

Have any of you noticed the same thing? Has recent style changes on the sites you regularly visit encouraged or discouraged your continued viewing?

Ditto. BTW the BBC has a "mobile"

click spot in the UL corner- like their former "low graphics". That gets you the text version. The menuing isn't the simplest, but it works for those of us who still know how to read. Happy

Just checked- you're right about IMDB.

And it's harder to use- less intuitive to get to the hard data. IMO it should have stayed as before. If I want 'pics of the stars' and celeb birthdays I'll get those from msn.com when I log off hotmail.

Update: BBC Mobile is now something else.

It seems aimed at true mobiles- PDAs, smart phones, and other small-screen devices.
At first it was the same as the normal news pages without most of the pics. (Low-Graphics, they called it.) I'm hoping that is still availble via another link. It's handy when my wife's laptop is on a slower connection.
