This here is not my all time favorite website. Still, I think this site does one quite amazing thing that deserves your attention. The main navigation on the home page is made up of a a live webcam. What a great touch. This is art. Via @romaincolin.

Ben the Bodyguard is basically a teaser website for getting people to sign up to be notified when a new iPhone app is launched. But it's such wonderfully executed. In fact, I've never seen anything quite like this. A big win for HTML5 storytelling. Via Robbin Ingvarsson.

Bobby Solomon's art/design/fashion/music blog Kitsune Noir has been a long time favorite of mine. The latest redesign not only changed all the visuals, but also changed the name. As Bobby points out, there were many reasons for doing this, but the most amusing one is the fact that an annoying French record label who puts out crappy mixtapes kept on threatening to sue him. He's also posted a write-up about the excellent new site design.

Cognition is Happy Cog's space for sharing thoughts on design, experience, code and more. Even though the design of the site is very well done with a great color scheme and wonderful navigational aspects, the most outstanding part of the site is the way they've implemented Twitter as the main interface for article comments.

Bureau is Thibaut Sailly's UX blog. The site is beautifully designed, making great use of white space and a fluid design that responsively adapts to browser width. Awesome, inspirational stuff.

With a brand new Digg and a hot new Think Vitamin, it's obvious that I should also post my favorite site redesign ever which is #newtwitter. I absolutely love what Vitor Lourenço, Doug Bowman and Zhanna Shamis have done with the site. So many people much smarter than me have weighed in on the new design already, and almost everybody seems to love it. Especially the fact that it feels so much like a desktop app. Read more about the Twitter redesign over at Quora.

The recent Digg reboot has gotten quite a bit of bad press recently, and I don't disagree with most of criticism. Judging by the user uproar and the bad numbers, it's easy to see that this complete rethinking of the service and user interface isn't a huge win for Digg. Still, I find the new site has a quite beautiful user interface. They've also managed to shave off many of the different elements, which is a good thing. It's also much more responsive now, and they've also done cool stuff like this.

The new Think Vitamin has given the site a great boost to the user experience side of things. The use of white space is hot. The same goes for the typography and the color scheme. I'm also very impressed by how beautiful they have made the Disqus comments look. If you like the site, you should read about the new site on Think Vitamin.

WebExpo Prague is a Central European gathering of web enthusiasts taking place in Prague (obviously) in a couple of weeks. My favorite parts about this site: The big, bold navigation, the various overlays on the homepage photos and the clear focus on the contents. A job well done by Lukas Plihal, Jakub Bartásek and Vojtěch Bulant.
