Crikey! A new look, a better reader experience

The new-look Crikey is here. We reckon our new online home is better to navigate and easier to read, with more bells and whistles to keep you coming back. What do you think?

You might notice a few changes around here ... The new-look Crikey is here. We reckon our relaunched website is better to navigate and easier to read, with more bells and whistles to keep you coming back. We hope you agree. Our new online home -- combined with the relaunch of our subscription newsletter, Crikey Insider -- puts a fresh face on a serious commitment to quality, fiercely independent journalism. We've even stamped it in the logo so you won't forget. With record paid subscribers and website traffic it was time to look as good as we read. The site features clearly defined "destinations" across the content categories we know you care most about. Articles are easier to find and read, our network of almost 20 blogs feeds directly into the homepage, and new features like the Decoder put a different spin on the news agenda. And it plays to our social media strengths, directly connecting with audiences on Twitter (61,500 followers), Facebook (20,300 likes) and other platforms. What's new on the website? Navigation: It's easier to find the stories you want via our navigation bar -- across POLITICS, BUSINESS, MEDIA, CULTURE, TECHNOLOGY and THE POWER INDEX. Hover your mouse over the subject area and find our sub-topics and "OUR PICK" for that section. Move the mouse over "VIEW A BLOG" to find all your favourites.  And use the new-look Crikey logo to go home ...

Homepage content layout: Some of our best stories are now located in our carousel at the top of the page. Click on the headlines to see what it's about and then click through to read the full article. Below, find more of "OUR PICKS" or click on the other tabs to view "FRESH STUFF" and the stories generating buzz in "MOST READ".
