The BBC has revealed plans for a complete revamp of its bbc.co.uk homepage that goes beyond just the aesthetic and will boast some new features too.

Coinciding with the 10th anniversary of the official launch of BBC online a beta version of the new homepage is available to view now by following the links from the current homepage (due to go live at any time).

The Beeb says that the redesign marks the first stage of the roll out of new features "aimed at delivering a reinvented bbc.co.uk that provides a world-class on-demand user experience".

The new beta version will allow users to customise the range and detail of content on the homepage, and is made up of moveable widgets that allow users to determine the layout of the page.

The widgets themselves are also customisable so users can select which shows they want news about, can receive feeds from specific BBC blogs and news and weather can be localised to each individual netizen.
