From The NY Times:
In a few weeks, we will update our home page with a new design that we’ve been testing with a small group of readers since last year. These changes are a first step to better meeting your needs:
Available anywhere: Whether you visit on your phone, tablet or computer, you’ll now see the same groups of stories across all your devices each day.
Easier to use: Our editors will group similar stories together to give you more context about topics in the news.
Helpful for following your interests: We’ve organized our home page so that, over time, it becomes easier to find the things you want to read most. Our editors will choose the most important and compelling stories each day, and we’ll supplement those selections with pieces we recommend for you, based on your interests.
