New York—The New York Times
announced the release of Times Skimmer, a new online application for NYTimes.com that mimics the layout and experience of paging through a newspaper. The Times
said the Skimmer allows users to browse through headlines and discover stories deep within sections of the Web site. The application displays a collection of headlines and short summaries of articles in a grid layout. It uses the same fonts found in the newspaper, the first time these fonts have been used on NYTimes.com.
The Skimmer includes a custom advertising position.
