Craigslist Updates Website Design
August 11, 2010
I was checking out the Raleigh Craigslist this morning, as I like to check out the Free Section, as well as the Computer Gigs, when I noticed that craigslist has updated their design a little bit.
Most of the changes appear to be pretty minor, such as changing the background color when you hover over the body links, instead of only underlining them. They also got rid of the dark gray color scheme, in favor of a much lighter one, based off of the lightest color in their old design.
I didn’t do too much poking, but it looks like the other parts of the site, such as the listings themselves, are the same.
Craigslist Gets Jquery and Thoughts on Design
The left hand side bar is essentially the same, aside from the new color, but they pretty much redid the right side, which is where the other US Cities are.
Overall, I like the new design, as it still offers the simplicity and functionality of the old design, while lightening everything up a little bit.
