A New Year, a New Look

January 11, 2011 —
Comments Off

Today we unveiled a new look on the site. We decided the website needed to be reorganized to allow expansion for upcoming consumer, enterprise, and developer products. 2011 is going to be an exciting year for Wolfram|Alpha!

When visiting the site you’ll notice an updated version of your home page. Once you’re there, “take a quick tour”, visit the newly redesigned product pages, and explore resources and tools.

You may have noticed that we’re developing new features on the results pages, too. One of those features is “linked results”. For example, enter a query for “Chicago”. Notice the blue underlined links? Click one to dig deeper into Wolfram|Alpha and see more related information.


We’re also developing “dog-ear peelbacks”. Hover over the dog-ear in the left corner of each pod to uncover how you can save the contents of the pod as an image or copyable plaintext.

The site’s new look is just the first of many new things to come here at Wolfram|Alpha. We’re looking forward to sharing them with you!


Cool stuff!

1. You say above ‘you ‘ll have noticed an updated version of your home page’ but the home page As far as I am concerned the home page is
You seem to be referring to
I suggest you make it a bit clearer.

2. Peelbacks. I fear that this adds unecessary complexity to W|A. Please consider icorporating this function into the existing red link in the top rh corner of each pod. The link could be changed to a dropdown list incorporating existing uses and those you are adding as ‘peelback’.

    Hi Brian, We also revamped all of the product and resource pages. Thank you for your feedback on the peelbacks. We’ll share your ideas with the team. Thank you!

      That About page looks terrible on Safari (Mac).
