There's no much thought gone into site navigation. Haven't ESPN heard of accessibility rules?

As its owned by ESPN, ESPN has just used its own website template and frame and put it on cricinfo. Espn.com is basically the same website.

Saying that I do like the colour differential on the live scorecard now where the runs scored are blue

They've got to you haven't they? They've brainwashed you.

Tell me what methods they used. Was it the water torture or being locked in a room with Des O'connor records being played non-stop?

I like what they've done with the match engine, and that you can see the live scores at a glance on the home page; but otherwise change for its own sake, and needless considering they had a recognisable and cogent format before.

I hated it at first. Not saying I like it more now but I'm getting used to it a bit more. It's hard to find what you want, but I suppose that's understandable with a new layout. But why not use the tried and tested layout and tweak the colours and design to show that it's under new ownership?

Some of the stats areas have changed quite a bit. Not had too much time to play with them but I'd guess that is where they have spent most of their time tinkering.

I think it is better set out, easier to navigate, contains more information more readily.

The main thing the old one had going for it was familiarity. Once we get use to the latest version I'm sure it will grow on all of us.

Some good, some bad. The one thing that annoys me is it automatically takes you to a new window if you click on anything in the live scorecard, used to for a few things which were good but now its everything, also dont like the front page layout. Although it is handy to have the links up to rather than having to go down the page looking for them

When it first came in they also had the team scorecards on different pages, glad they changed that

Drop down menus are also handy, can save a couple of pages which quickens things up

This monster must be destroyed. Burn it and dispose of the body where no one will find it.
