The redesign of ICANN.ORG <*http://ICANN.ORG*>  just went live today, 27

The new information architecture arranges the resources that
ICANN.ORGoffers in a more logical style. More than 38,000 pages and
files were
carefully examined and migrated into the best locations, following
extensive consultation with the ICANN community:****

   1. Nearly 300 responses to the site survey conducted by The Revere Group
   2. More than two dozen in-depth interviews with SO and AC members ****
   3. A series of live briefings (with Q&A) across two ICANN public
   meetings ****
   4. At least three briefings to Board Directors (via the Public
   Participation Committee) ****
   5. Two public webinars requesting input and concerns****

Some of the new features on the site include:****

   - All visitors can now move directly from ICANN’s home page to your SO
   or AC site in one click . ****
   - The latest Board activity and the most recent topics open for Public
   Comment now show on the home page. ****
   - The new Planet ICANN feed mixes almost every RSS and Twitter feed from
   ICANN in one ever-updating resource, providing a handy tool for monitoring
   ICANN developments broadly. ****
   - The new Stay Connected bar provides site visitors with easier social
   media integration to ICANN than we’ve had before. ****
   - Across HTML portions of the site (thus, not in PDFs), you can now
   hover your cursor over that puzzling acronym, and what it stands for will
   pop up, spelled out, as a “tool tip.” ****
   - For the first time, ICANN’s site can auto-detect when it is accessed
   via a mobile device such as a tablet or smart phone, and present a view
   speciically tailored for the visitor’s type of device. ****
   - On the home page’s multi-lingual bar, you can click your chosen
   language to immediately see an aggregation of all materials available in
   that language. The most recent documents top the list.****

Note that the changes affect, quite literally, ICANN.ORG, and not other
ICANN sites such as gnso.icann.org, alac.icann.org, the wiki sites, and so

If you’d like to provide feedback or ask questions about the new look and
feel, please feel free to email communications@xxxxxxxxx

Thanks also for your patience and support during the careful process that
has brought us to this milestone. We’re far from done, but I hope you'll
see the newly redesigned site as a significant improvement in making
ICANN’s work more understandable and inclusive.

Best Regards,

Scott Pinzon
Director of Marketing and Outreach
