TechCrunch Gets a Cool Interface Redesign
Here at ArabCurnch we are big fans of TechCrunch, it is a must read for anyone involved with the internet industry specially web 2.0 ( Disclosure ArabCrunch is not affiliated with TechCrunch it is just we both have cool names 🙂 )
I love this new design it is more streamlined and cuts the clutter. And now I will be able to navigate through TC network more easily. thought I will be waiting for TC’s implementation of new search using Yahoo BOSS Custom, in which Mark Hendrickson says “it will lets you search by keyword across our entire network of blogs, plus CrunchBase.” because the old search simply did not work.
My suggestion to TC is if they can add more hot company list widget on the sidebar, hot companies can be based on mentions on TC, Techmeme, and using AideRSS API.
Here is the old and new designs
Here is the first design since 2005 until may 2006.
Where Michael Arrington founder of TechCrunch commented in TC redesigns:
I love that old one too. Fred Oliveira from webreakstuff.com did it. we still use it on mobilecrunch and techcrunch france. but when we went to 125×125 ad units, and added a 300 px ad unit (an industry standard) we had to change to a different layout. it’s also nice to change things around every once in awhile too.
