    Ok, guys, we had a thread about NXP's site a while ago. Long story short
    I wrote to them and, surprise, they engaged in a lively back-and-forth
    improvement session and really listened. They changed a lot of stuff,
    got rid of fluff and while not perfect yet I think the NXP site has
    improved quite a bit. Heck, now you can even use it with Java Script
    turned off (gets rid of the nag screen). And no, I am not paid by them,
    just got involved because I didn't want to see a company that was good
    to me go down the tubes.

    So what do thee think?

    Anything is an improvement.

    They were sending customers away, which is not what a web site is
    designed for. Glad someone there actually understands the principle.

    Thanks for getting involved.

    Cheers Don...

    Looks better than it used to ! But I don't like the floaty bookmark tab
    on the right hand side. Its distracting !

    Methinks it be good. Better layout to get down to a specific datasheet
    when I knoweth the part number (base datasheet no longer hidden amongst
    a gazillion appnotes) and easy to drill down for additional info.

    Works with Opera!

    PDFs are now blisteringly fast, and actually download. :)

    Allows you to switch back to the old Philips-style site. At the end of
    this improvement process they'll hopefully ditch that.

    I've told them :)

    Yes. What concerned me is that only two parts show up under analog.
    Probably ended up in the wrong places but it'll be corrected.

    Holy schnockers, Opera 8.51? Why not upgrade to the current (9.5)

    It worked just fine for me using opera 8.52 yesterday ! I do hope they
    haven't broken it again !

    Bloatware (damn them).

    However that doesn't really address my comment. What's wrong with a standards
    compliant site ?

  15. Joerg

    Joerg Guest

    Sure is, I'll let them know.

    Works after a fashion with 8.52 ! Frames are shown on top of one another
    though and the list shown when you click on a link gets over written.
    I'm going to update to Opera 9.27 on this machine. The old version was
    a hangover from a Linux upgrade.

    It is still way too cookie dependant. I generally do not tolerate

    There is a good reason for the contact form. You are expected to see
    that when you think about that.

    Clicking on product in the left side of the frame gives a list
    underneath the frame. The top line gets hidden underneath the edge of
    the frame. It isn't always clickable !

    Otherwise its much better !
  20. Joerg,
    Great, my congrat for making them listen.
