Post Unveils New Web Site

postsite.jpgWe’ve always found The New York Post‘s Web site distracting, difficult to navigate and hard to read — quite the opposite of the print version.

But this week, the Post is sporting a new online look at NYPost.com that’s cleaner and less cluttered. There’s still a lot going on — from headlines to Page Six to pictures and events — but we’re kind of enjoying the new layout. (Until we clicked over to Page Six and a “Melrose Place” ad took over.)

Could this revamp be part of owner Rupert Murdoch‘s plan to charge for content in the coming months? Or is this another instance of a local paper trying something new? Either way, even with these changes, Murdoch’s going to get some pushback from readers if he tries to charge for NYPost.com: in our poll last month, 88 percent of you said you wouldn’t pay for access to the site.

Does the new look change your mind at all?
