New York Times releases newspaper-like "article skimmer"


While I prefer the sheer heft of the Sunday NYT, there’s something to be said for a great and easy way to skim the online version of the paper. Thankfully, the company just released a new webpage/browser for their website that creates skimmable browser that is easy to read without scrolling.

The skimmer works with most browsers. You simply click as section to see some of the latest stories – not all of them, but enough to be useful. The stories pop up in little boxes on the page along with a thumbnail image.

While many of a certain age will agree that there’s something about getting the paper in the morning that can’t be beat, I’m sure my son will be reading the NYT in this format on his own iTablet come 2020 or so. And so we march into the future.
