New Look For The NY Times Online

The Times introduces its new web look today. In a front page note the editors say the new look presents a, "refreshed look, streamlined navigation, expanded use of video and other multimedia and better ways to see what other readers are looking at, searching for and talking about."

My first impression is that it is a full screen wide, causes difficulty for bloggers who need to have their bookmarks always open on the left side of the screen as we jump around the web for our links. On the plus side, the new page includes a "Most Popular" list of stories with a tab that brings up a list of the "Most Blogged". Clicking on those story links leads to a permalink for the story with links to a selection of the blogs in question. We'll see.
