We’re really digging the new BBC beta homepage. Clean, simple and complete. Not sure how useful the clock is though.
The clock def. adds a touch of class. There are some very notable browser issues with the background. I’m not to jazzed about the color switcher in the main ad, and the module headers are bit too web 2.0 for me. BUT hey its a beta and the functionality is there !
I agree. The clock definitely sets the design apart. If there were three or four useless widgets around the page, I might point a finger—the clock is tastefully done.
Good point. I do find the clock visually appealing and yeah, why not?
Does the clock need to be useful? Others have singled it out as ‘cute’. Perhaps it just adds a little personality?
