The New York Times on the Web unveiled a fresh new look on Sunday, with new features. Most notably, besides a more pleasing design, there are now many more chances to see what fellow readers are up to.
You not only can discover nytimes.com’s most emailed and most blogged stories but also the most popular movies for its readers. Number one late Sunday was “V for Vendetta,” with, improbably, “Basic Instinct 2”–which the paper savaged in a review–at number two.
In fact, only two of the ten most popular movies received favorable Times reviews.
A note from the editor stated: “Some of the changes and new features you’ll see are 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.”
Another new feature are most popular “Times Topics” –ranging from people to “organizations.”
