The Editors at The New Yorker:

On a desktop, on a tablet, on a phone, the site has become, we believe, much easier to navigate and read, much richer in its offerings, and a great deal more attractive. For months, our editorial and tech teams have been sardined into a boiler room, subsisting only on stale cheese sandwiches and a rationed supply of tap water, working without complaint on intricate questions of design, functionality, access, and what is so clinically called “the user experience.”

What you notice is that they are aware of what is key to their business success: the content. So when you scroll down into the story a bit your eye just sees the story. It’s lovely in that there are very few bullshit distractions.
