Reddit Overhauls Its Front Page

Reddit has overhauled its front page today in an attempt to be more friendly to new users and lurkers. They might want to work on the stories they actually link though, the "new" front page is full of f-bombs that make it hard for people to view from work / school.

Today’s change seems aimed squarely at making Reddit more palatable for first-time users and lurkers who have yet to sign up for an account. Indeed, people already logged into their Reddit accounts won’t see a change unless they manually navigate to the new Popular page, continuing to see either the previous 50 default subreddits, or the top stories in the boards they’d previously subscribed to.
