The New York Times is previewing a new cleaner website design that will roll out slowly in the coming months. The centrepiece of the redesign is the article view, which you can compare here.
Less clutter in the design makes the Times' website easier to read to read. But just because there's less on the screen doesn't mean you have fewer options. The website's navigation interface has been simplified to the essentials. If you want more, just click the "sections" tab in the top left corner or scroll through the different articles in each section in the scrolling banner at the top. To sign up to check out the new redesign, head over to the Time's prototype page.
