The Radio Times has recently updated their web site and while it looks good and has a couple of nice new features there's one thing I really hate about it.
If you asked the old version of the site to show what's on telly now, the listings start from that time. The new site shows the current hour so quite often I was checking the listings at 19:45 and wondering why the guide didn't match what was on the telly. It was because the start line was showing 19:00 and that program finished at 19:30. Your eye had to scan down the channels and keep scanning up to check if that program was still running. It made reading the page a bit of a chore.
And so I've try to fix it! The time bar label is still locked to the hour so it doesn't match the programs but it's a small price to pay for being able to scan down the start line and see what's on now. I've also put an update button at the top of the screen to refresh the page so you don't have to phaff around with their awful mouse-over navigation menu thing at the top. The refresh button has the last updated time on it which has turned out to be a handy little feature.
I replaced my existing Radio Times bookmark, and frankly I haven't looked back!
