MSNBC.Com getting a makeover

MSNBC is making the most drastic changes to it’s home page in a long time.

First off, the header becomes wider, taking the complete page width.  Constantly changing content in this area promises to deliver the newest information right on the top of the page.

The next change is a tabbed layout:

But the most interesting (to me) change is the way you can now set and manipulate the main page content.

You can change the order of the sections, change the number of articles displayed, etc.

 

The changes look interesting – of course you can’t tell if you like it until it is actually "live".

You can read the details on the Alpha Channel blog over on MSNBC.
