It's now been nearly a month since we launched the biggest redesign in AnandTech history. Monday we'll be celebrating our 13 year anniversary and it'll start with our most expensive system giveaway to date. I've also received product from ASRock, G.Skill, OCZ and Patriot to give away in addition to celebrate both the relaunch and the anniversary of AT. It's going to be an exciting month ahead of us.

If you haven't noticed, we've been introducing new features and fixing bugs since we launched the new site a month ago and I wanted to give you all a quick update on everything we've done.

First and foremost, Print this Article functionality has been restored. It was always on the list, it just didn't make the cut for launch. We've also brought back inline Gallery listing, enabled tagging, fixed a handful of bugs and issues that you've brought up and have more coming.

Expect galleries, commenting and the front page to all get much more flexible in the coming weeks. I'm talking about in-line responses in the comments section (no more page loads to respond to a comment) as well as the option to compress down the front page to a simpler listing for those who want it. In the interim we've changed our backend a bit to not put all articles by default into the carousel up top. What you'll see up there are our biggest reviews/news stories, while the smaller stuff (this just in, any smaller news, etc...) will appear in the listing below.

I do appreciate your patience as we implement the new features and changes we've got coming, and we'll be showing some of that appreciation next week with these giveaways :)

As always, if you've got any feedback feel free to contact us or leave a comment. We're always listening.

    Been a long time reader as well, the new site looks a lot cleaner and everything seems easier to access/find. I like it :) Reply

    They are distracting and confusing.

    Make the images smaller and fix them on the top of the page with the most recent on the left.

    If you want to put images links for additional, older articles, then put an arrow image for me to click on so that I can scroll them under my control.

    i agree. get rid of the horizontal scrolling article images... it doesn't help with identifying new articles and it makes my firefox browser laggy too. Reply

    I agree, the carousel is really distracting and irritating. Also if you have a bunch of tabs open it starts to stutter which makes it even worse. Please get rid of it. Reply

    I agree too- Just show the 3 newest images at the top, and let me click on the triangles to rotate them if/when I want to. Reply

    I agree, too. I think it's just the latest fad in "modern" web design, like a badge of proof that they use jquery. ArsTechnica did something similar in their last redesign, too. Reply

    Add me to the list of auto-scrolling haters, as well.
    At least make it an option that can be disabled.
    Allow the reader to decide whether or not they want to allow the bar to scroll automatically or manually step through the articles in the band.

    100% agree.

    On a similar point, I don't like that the "Latest Posts" section contains headline articles, since it's a repeat of info.

    Hi Anand could you add support as downloading the articles in PDF's so that one can read articles while on the go when without internet connection. Hopeful to see this feature. Thanks Anand. Reply

    Why not just use the "Print Article" then print it to PDF (or whatever format you want) Reply
