Ew. Orange. But for some reason, it takes less time to load on my office computer, so I guess I love it!

And I love it how it tries to install that Weather.exe (or whatever the fuck it's named) file on my computer. What a great bonus!

The farther the Internet economy plunges down the shitter - the more obnoxious the ads get. I give you 411, ign.com and salon.com

I had really high hopes for the redesign, but I'm sorry to say it looks like ASS. Seriously. The big tilted gray boxes are a good idea, but the implementation is poor. And the Green fade in the boxes on the side is very distracting. The Font they used for the Box Headers ( .:MUSIC:. and etc) looks like crap on all my computers (Win2kSP3 w/IE6SP1 or Mozilla 1.2.1, or my home computer with XPSP1 and IE6SP1) whether I have FontSmoothing/ClearType turned on or not. Very disappointing, since I've really been diggin 411 since I discovered it about a year ago.

I gotta agree that there is something wrong with the way it looks, and after a few minutes of contemplation, it hit me-

The background needs to be black.

I think that one minor change would make the whole site a lot easier on the eyes, and much more appealing on the whole. I think the design is fine- it is just too damned bright...

I find I enjoy 411 (and 1BOB or the Torch for that matter) infinitely more ever since Panicware's Pop-Up blocker and I became so well acquainted.

I couldn't agree more, Pop-Up Stopper (or Pop-Up Stopper Companion, it has a few more options) is the best application EVER.

Now if I could just find a way to make IE kill Alex Chiu seizure banners my life would be complete. :)

Wowzers, if I had a pound for every error message I just got when I tried to go to their new little playground I'd have oooooh, 1..2...3...4...5..6..7, 7 pounds!!

This never used to happen. I wonder what on earth it means....

Alex will be going away in the coming days....I should be to the point where they owe me my free immortality rings. And when I'm alive 10,000,000 years from now and you're not, we'll see who mocks whose banners! ;)

Eh, it's all the same to me. Opera has an option to block all pop-ups.

Ooh, TAG.

It looks so IGNish it's disturbing. 411 had a unique (to me) layout and I'll miss it.

Plus, if you're reading this Ashish or Widro, nobody ever answers yes when asked to install shit like weather.exe, EVER. So congrats on actually being able to squeeze free money out of whoever is paying to put that there and annoy the public.

Nickelodeon indeed.

Some of the pages are still using the old layout, like the TV Reports section. It looks like crap actually, like they rushed to get it up or something. How long have they been planning to do this?

PS: Pop-Up Stopper DOES do wonders for the site.

I've visted the site a few times today, without a pop-up killer, and no pop-ups. Perhaps they lost those with the redesign, or maybe it's just me.

Some of the colours aren't cool, but overall, I think the redesign went smoother than at least I expected (most site overhauls I've seen don't work out).

I think it looks pretty good. I've started checking out the other subsites as well and they seem well done.

I actually like the redesign. from a graphic illustrator's standpoint, the color scheme is actually damn good. Kudos on whoever did the redesign. Doing something new, but keeping all of the old content in is not easy.
