Great new MSNBC.com design … damn, it crashed!

By Steve Outing

I really like the new design of MSNBC.com and its customizable homepage. You can move sections around it whatever order you want, and select how many headlines and story blurbs are shown in each section.

I assume that the settings are cookie-based, since I don’t see the need to log in to get your customized page. Problem with that, of course, is that if you have reason to clear out all your cookies, your customization is gone.

Alas, when I tried to update my location, it crashed my browser. Sigh.
