Everyone loves a wordle — and everyone loves to see what readers actually read (as opposed to what they purport to read).

Times Online‘s popular searches feature combines both, which makes for an effective illumination of what’s important to Times readers and a nice, unboring way to discover content.


Times Online is one of the best newspaper websites around, from a design perspective that is. It’s chatty (it has a section called “arts & ents”) and user-friendly yet professional.
