You may have noticed that we’ve updated our look and feel. We’ve done this in response to comments from you, our readers, and commercial imperatives (e.g., our mobile and tablet readers account for 40 percent of readership – and rising – but we hadn’t properly monetized them with advertising). If you’ve been on the mobile site, you’ve noticed that there are now a fair number of full-size ads. On the more positive side, you can (finally) respond to individual comments. At the same time, we’ve streamlined the home page to be more consistent with our tablet and phone versions. Yes, we know there are major and minor bugs to fix. Rest assured, there will be two colors on the home page (as before). And a san serif typeface. And we will make sure the comments aren’t too narrow on the mobile version. Fortunately we have top men working on these and other issues even as we speak. Meanwhile, the team’s reading all your comments below to iron-out the wrinkles and improve the UI. Your patronage, patience and understanding are most appreciated.
