Last week, we told you it was coming. And now, it’s here: the brand new Maxim.com. It’s not a drastic change — editor-in-chief Jay Woodruff hinted that bigger changes were coming — but it does some good things including making the layout cleaner and provide a prime spot for video (on the lower right of the image above). Overall, simple changes that increase the site’s functionality.

For comparison sake, a screenshot of the old homepage is after the jump.
