All hail the new Ars Technica!

Everybody’s favourite technical news, views and reviews site Ars Technica has had a huge face lift.

I really like it, the colours are more subdued and sophisticated than before, and the text is larger and easier to read, with all the different sections and top stories much easier to find. I’d say that casual visitors to the site are going to find it much more accessible.

And what’s more, they’ve reduced the amount of advertising on the site, pulling it out of the body of stories. This is fantastic, I’ve always hated how adverts inserted into the body of an article squishes or breaks up the text, making it much harder to read. This is a very welcome change, and shows that Ars really does have their reader’s interests as top priority.

Well done to whoever created this new design, it works for me!
