BBC Beta

The BBC is one of the most visited sites on the net and yet it looks old. Although I do like things to look digitally pretty (and site could do with a face lift), this is more than skin deep: it looks functionally old. I am talking about the HTML, the static design, the annoying Windows Media Player or Real Player videos, the funny little buttons and so on.

Anyway, I just headed over to the main BBC page (I normally only use the News page) and to my joy found this, a great-looking new(ish) beta page that launched last month. Clean, simple, personalised, localised and searchable. I hope something similar happens to the BBC News page soon.

See more about this on the BBC Internet Blog
