    I use BBC as my homepage, they have recently updated the site so that you can customise it....it's very simple, but I think it works well and looks good.

    Wondering what other BBC users think about the new layout?

    Go on, 'ave a butchers....

    compartmentalized like facebook. Interesting concept and I think a good one, but I'm not particularly fond of the aesthetics in general as is. If they could work something out where it would be easily customizable and still look like someone designed it and didn't just haphazardly slap a bunch of shit together at the same time that would be nice.

    I hear you there NIC, though I think it's an improvement as it's very user friendly, any idiot could use it. Only niggle for me so far, is that if you follow a link to, let's say a news item, the link will show up in the old format. Shame.

    Frequent BBC to see what the other side of the pond is thinking about... and I'm with you on this... and preferred the prior version.

    English spelling faceking. :smile:

    You can check what other users feel about the new layout here, most seem to love it or hate it.

    I think it looks neater than the old one.It's easy to find which part of the site you want.

    Being able to move the 'news', 'entertainment', 'history' (et al) tabs, (I placed 'news' at the top) is a nice touch. At first I thought that one couldn't move them.

    You can change the colour in the 'customise' section, although there isn't a lot of choice.

    Lol, nearly missed that....much better mate, for us Brits at least...:biggrin1:
