Fascinating new website for The Boston Globe — resize your browser window and you’ll see what I mean. There is no need for an “iPhone” or “mobile” version — the layout simply reflows naturally on small screens. The design is uncluttered and reader-friendly. How many newspaper website designs can you say that about?
For the rest of September, BostonGlobe.com will be free, but after
that readers will have to pay $3.99 a week for a digital-only
subscription. Home delivery subscribers will not have to pay extra
for the site but will need to register online to gain access.
The newspaper’s existing site, Boston.com, will remain free and
will offer breaking news, blogs, photo galleries, sports coverage,
and a limited selection of stories from the paper.
