Al Jazeera, in English on the Net

Al Jazeera or Al Jezira, the TV news channel from Qatar, is now available in English. It often made the news headlines of other information medias since its creation on 1st November 1996, with its policitical stance very favorable to Islam and often considered very favorable to extremism and sometimes terrorism.

Today, the channel not only broadcasts in Shakespeare’s language (originally, only in Arab) but also has a web site in English. Not even counting the additional point of view this brings to international issues and politics for people not speaking Arab, you will quickly notice that the web site is very clean, neat and tidy (it could be a good example for those web designer tempted to add one after another kludge to already heavy user interfaces). Nearly no ads, an easy browsing.
