More on the CNN.com redesign I mentioned yesterday: There's now a Flash movie explaining the site's new features (and a non-Flash version), along with a feedback page. Now that I've had some more time to look it over, I've decided the only significant technological advancement is their new treatment of breaking news. According to the redesign announcement, "When news breaks or develops, we will notify you with instant banners appearing not only on the home page, but across every page on the site." A very smart innovation -- and one that can easily be adopted on any Apache site using simple server-side includes.
A new bookmarklet, GraphicsInfo, will create an index of all the images on a Web page -- including background images, images in form elements, etc. -- with a slew of useful information about each image. Only works in certain browsers, though. (Link from webgraphics)
