I have been a long-time viewer of news websites: msnbc.com and npr.org until now. But late total redesign of their sites were truly double whammy for me, too severe to tolerate. It’s so sad for me have to not look at those ugliest sites. Overblown pictures, ugly typography, without scrolling can’t see the 2nd articles, etc etc.. Right after the Obamacare website’s fiasco, what’s going on with these ‘too-progressive‘ web designers? Looking at these two ‘weird-looking’ sites, I can’t help but concluding the two sites were designed by the ‘progressive’ designer. Now, I have to love the New York Times web-look more than ever.
