I want my MTV

MTV’s Web site is sweet. They just released a fast, clean, HTML+CSS site, a wonderful change from their Flash based behemoth, which really was a technical wonder, but really hard to use. I am totally digging the new version. Mad props to my favorite designer/dev, Dan Cederholm, for leading the team into the new millennium. Read Dan’s writeup here, and read MTV Labs’ writeup here.

Purevolume, then Virb, now MTV… hey, MySpace, you paying attention? Anyone? Anyone? Didn’t think so…

    I like how much faster it is, that’s a huge plus. I also like the new backgrounds on refresh. What’s going on with validation, though?

    At this point, if MySpace did anything major, it’d probably break everybody’s personalized profiles. I’m with ya on the MTV design … it’s way better than before.

    Yeah I digg the new XHTML/CSS design too. I wasn’t too fond of the all Flash version. The only thing I’m not too happy about is that I’m unable to watch the music videos due to the fact that I’m not in the U.S. due to copyright restrictions apparently. :(

    Oh by the way Matt, isn’t it “Cederholm” and not “Cedarholm”? :)

    Thank god they abandoned the use of Flash. Sure, it can look great, but many times, it is too over the top and ends up acting as a barrier to the information that the visitor is actually looking for.
