Metro newspapers' website gets a facelift

Metro has finally redesigned its website, which was pretty innovative for a while, but was looking seriously dated. Indeed, a peek at the Wayback Machine shows that the site's look stagnated between 1996 and 2005, nearly ten years without any significant changes in the design!

The new design isn't exactly spectacular, but it's better than looking like you went out of business and forgot to shut of the webserver.





Indicidentally, they also own Boulevards.com, whose launchpage appears to have been given a facelift too, maybe last year around the same time they redesigned all their city guide portals like SanFrancisco.com. For Ynnej and Angelo, I note that they have Seattle.com, and for Sarah, they have StLouis.com (sorry, no Columbia.com).
