Welcome to Engadgetscape

September 18, 2006

Engadget has a new look. Nice. But am I the only one at this stage to have noticed that the back end changes in terms of voting on comments etc is Netscape. Clever work by Jason Calacanis to leverge the scripting from Netscape into his Blogsmith platform though. Still no support for trackbacks though. As Darren over at Problogger notes theres less ads as well. With a page rank of 8 I’d think they could live off the side bar text links alone 🙂

  1. Actually, our comments system is almost entirely new and designed only for Engagdet right now. Netscape is Netscape, but we have our own needs. Thanks!

    Best, Ryan

  2. I’ve noticed that too. Is that a ranking system they have? I haven’t used their new features yet.
