For the last several months, I’ve been relatively absent from this space. The reason why is that we’ve been hard at work developing a new version of the Cheezburger sites. Today, we launched a public beta at (which you can compare to the old site).
The abbreviated version of what we’ve been doing for the last several months can be summed up in this one simple phrase: addition by subtraction.
We cut the clutter, got rid of the noise, and brought the funny pictures front and center. There is more laughs per pixel, less advertising getting in the way, and a more streamlined experience overall.
Here’s a picture from the office while we were hard at work. As you can see, I didn’t do this all by myself…there were many other cats involved, and they deserve as much, if not more, credit than I.
I hope you enjoy the new sites as much as we enjoyed making them!
