I hate to be complaining ;) but Infoworld has been having lots of problems with it's new site layout. They made it look pretty, but really screwed with the site fucntionality. The site for information technology professional's basically ran a beta test with its' audience, and has lost many of them to the register.
Loads slowly Lacks what made it attractive before (short summaries) Features don't work (the news page was blank for a long time) Search engine broke The real complaint was with the new forum software, which they outsourced to programmers who are clueless about html.
People have not been quiet.
