How to Customize io9's Navigation

We've made a few small changes to the site today, including putting more stories on the front page for you to read. Welcome to the modern age!

There's also a new way to interact with stories in our right sidebar: You can now set the sidebar to a one- or two-paned interface (here's a helpful video from Lifehacker explaining how it works - the same controls are available on io9).

The one-pane interface locks the right sidebar in place so that when you scroll the page, it scrolls along with the page. The two-pane interface (available on Firefox 4, Chrome, and Safari) works just like the previous default: You can scroll the page content and the sidebar content independently, using your mouse's scroll wheel, your laptop's trackpad, or by clicking and dragging the scrollbar itself.

Finally, you can still toggle between "blog" view and "top stories" view by clicking the button you see pictured at left.

It's nice, and the injection of a little colour is very good... but I've just noticed the blocks at the boxes at the bottom of artciles, going to what appears to be popular stories from each site in the Gawkerverse, and I do not like that - it feels like there's not much of a space between the comments and that, so it makes everything look a little busy and clunky.

Apart from that, it's a-ok here for me! Well, at least here... the less said about Kotaku's colour scheme, frankly, the better.
