With the goal of creating a more seamless experience from device to device, we’ve updated the navigation system and completely changed how it works on mobile devices. Perhaps most notably, the website now has a single navigation menu instead of the original two.
For mobile users, we wanted to create an experience that allows them to focus on the article they are reading without being overwhelmed by ads, having to wait forever for the page to load, or experiencing browser crashes due to overly complex interfaces. Such obstacles to a great user experience are common amongst even the most sophisticated and popular of information websites.
Lastly, the menu that’s presented while reading an article has also been slimmed way down to focus the user on social sharing options that make it easy and fun to share great content.
