The New York Times is experimenting with new ways to view a newspaper online. Their just released “article skimmer” appeals to me as a way of emulating the effect of spreading out the newspaper on your breakfast table and to look for what’s interesting.
How to navigate from their announcement:
We’re also geeks, so there are plenty of keyboard commands for the efficiency lovers. The space bar takes you down a section, and shift-space brings you back up. Arrow keys do the same. You can navigate sections by holding down the “s” key (s for section), typing the number that appears, and releasing the “s” key. Same goes for articles, but with the “a” key (a for article). If you need a reminder, just click the “?” in the upper right corner.
Give it a try, I know I’m adding it my favorites and my morning routine.
