The frontpage of is the process of being redesigned. Eric Meyer of Netscape communications got an interview with Mike Davidson who is working on the redesign. As hard as it is to change such a big website, the DevEdge team is doing it slowly over time.

Switching to a div based design (instead of the table based) has saved them over 2 Terabytes per day in bandwidth. The math:

  • Page reduction (est.): 50KB
  • Page views/day: 40,000,000
  • Projected bandwidth savings:
    • 2 terabytes/day
    • 61 terabytes/month
    • 730 terabytes/year
