I know it has been live for a few days now, but the new design over at Slashdot is a most welcome change. The site had become quite crufty, looking more like a website from the mid-1990's than a hip, modern site of today. This new CSS redesign has made the site much cleaner, and I have to believe that they are now enjoying significant bandwidth savings since they've gone the CSS route (though their markup still isn't the prettiest in the world). Hopefully this face lift will boost the site's apparently sagging popularity. I for one, am most pleased with what they've done.
