As I'm sure you've all noticed by now, the New Zealand Herald has a new website (so does Stuff, but that's less important). But apart from being prettier yet somehow more irritating to navigate (there's no longer the long list of stories down the side of each page), it also makes a very welcome change: there's no more paywall, so their opinion content is available to all again. I guess they decided that there was no point locking away their best content where people couldn't see it (and where it would earn them no advertising revenue).
On the minus side, those big animated ads make it a bit of a browser hog. Any suggestions as to how to kill them?
