Didn't know that Aljazeera had redesigned. Their new site is really impressive in terms of ease of use.
The pictures really make it look more like a website - the current designs of the 'broadsheet' papers in the UK seem to try and make their websites look more like 'information resources' than proper websites.
It always confuses me to a certain degree - the newspapers spend significant amounts of money on sending journalists out to get pictures of what's going on. Then they put stories on the web that are mainly text. I admit that there are bandwidth costs involved, but these costs are reducing as time goes on.
Put some pictures up!
I look forward to seeing what the Guardian manage with their upcoming redesign.
