USA Today rolled out a newly designed home page for USATODAY.com today. The new homepage not only simplifies navigation, but also increases performance – the new page loads 25 to 35% faster, according to USA Today.

The redesign includes a new row of multimedia content featuring interactive graphics, videos and photo galleries. Content is now grouped by print and online-only sections to include: News, Money, Life, Sports, Better Life, Weather, Tech, Travel and Opinion. The right side of the page offers a “Community Buzz” area, highlighting recent posts from the rag’s blogs; “You Said It,” which points out recent user comments; plus daily polls.

This is the site’s first redesign since 2007. A video tour of the newly designed home page can be viewed at: redesign.usatoday.com.
