What is so special about this redesign?
Glad you asked. We think it’s special because in creating it we chose to adopt a responsive web design approach for our redesign.
Responsive design aims for accessibility across a large number of devices and screen dimensions. The same content can be seen on different devices and there’s no need to download a mobile application or a special reader.
What’s does that mean for me?
It means you only need to use your web browser to enjoy our content. No need to download an application. Our site layout adapts to your context and device. It also means you should be able to easily switch in and out of your favorite social media sites.
So I can view it on any browser?
Almost any browser. Unfortunately, we cannot support older browsers such as IE6 and IE7. We highly recommend that you upgrade your browser to enjoy the optimal experience. If you use IE8 make sure not to use “Compatibility View”.
