Glad I found the Weekly View
I almost always read The Reg on one of my iPads, e.g. the old one in the bathroom... On the new layout I have to do much more scrolling to see the same number of stories so I think it's a retrograde change. It's also at least as jerky because of the adverts. The old layout but with a quarter size top banner pic would have been my suggestion.
However this whole 'story' introduced me to the Weekly View which is *much* more to my liking, so thank you, have your pint!
