For a few days I've been forcing myself to use the new BBC Website's beta homepage to get an idea of what it is like in everyday use.
|The New BBC Beta Homepage|
It is a bit like the new Blogger Dynamic Views pages, and very html5y. Pages seem to adapt to screensizes (great if you are using a netbook or a tablet) and are a simple roll of 2 vertical/many horizontal to the right panes.
|Lower section of the front page of BBC Beta Homepage|
|Next panel to the right. Note more iPlayer links and content.|
I'm quite liking the new BBC Beta Homepage and am sure I could quite easily get used to it. I hope the clever people dealing with this at the BBC give us the chance to change our location on it (I live in Scotland and am not particularly interested in the London weather or the London local news).
Lets see how this BBC Beta hompage evolves... I am already noticing more iPlayer links and content. You can try it out yourself by visiting http://beta.bbc.co.uk/
Please also use the feedback option to let the people at the BBC know what you think about it.
As usual, feel free to leave comments and/or questions below.
