The Bivings Report (TBR) ranked the ten best newspaper Web sites, and The New York Times and Washington Post came out on top. Sites were judged based on features, design, aesthetics and usability. The blog report excitedly mentioned the Times rumor to drop TimesSelect, and praised the Post’s database applications. I have to mention third place, USA Today, as it was chosen for having “the most robust social networking features.”
TBR seemed to favor a Web product that’s complimenting the print product and simultaneously utilizing modern technology to provide a different news experience.
