East to navigate
Content updated very regularly
I have the BBC website set up as my homepage as I find it very informative and easy to navigate around. The homepage of the BBC website is superb - very clearly laid out with clearly deifned sections. I like the new layout they intorudced last year with the key three topics in the main sections (news and sports etc) sections highlighted that you can scroll over and the picture changes depending on the story. I also like the fact that the homepage always looks fresh because not only is the content constantly updated but the colours change and there is also an interesting feature in the main header box. If by any chance I've been unable to find what I'm looking for then then search engine is very good and retrieves results almost instantly.
One small gripe I have is with the new weather section which I believe has been put live recently. If you click on the 5 day forecast then you are presented with a map which is almost identical to the weather map you see on BBC1 news etc. However, online its impact is minimal and on a small laptop screen its not always easy to see the difference between cloud and rain etc.
That said, the BBC website delivers all that you could possibly want and more. I also like the end of week quiz which is posted every Friday.
