Popular website Rediff has gotten a complete overhaul. The new interface uses a card-like system and one can't help but draw comparisons with social networking website Pinterest. It uses the cards to show content in the same random-seeming mosaic layout as Pinterest.
It's not just the home page that is like this. Even going into separate categories such as News, Business or Sports shows the content in the same style. The major difference is that while Pinterest takes up most, if not all the screen real estate that your computer's resolution might have to offer, Rediff forgoes this in favour of just showing most of the cards in the left half of the screen.
The redesign is very reminiscent of Pinterest
The mobile version of the website, however, doesn't follow the new interface. Instead, it opts for simple thumbnails in the home page, and text and quick links when you go into separate categories.
Rediff is a news, information, entertainment and shopping portal that was founded in 1996 as Rediff on the NeT. According to Alexa, Rediff is ranked at number 14 in terms of traffic in India. The website offers many services, including Rediffmail, Rediff Bol, Rediff Songbuzz and Rediff Locale, among other things.
Back in 2011, Rediff launched group deals, dubbed Rediff Deal Ho Jaye! The service offers consumers discounts in around 40 cities across India. The discounts offered range from 30 percent to 60 percent.
Last year saw Rediff launch its own Android app for Rediff news. The app has a tiled interface.
