Blogger has released another of revamp for its blogs. Google has just introduced new dynamic views for readers, using the latest technology to give bloggers and readers a freshly brilliant new look.
BLOGGER'S FRESH NEW LOOKS
These new feature involves five new templates using the latest HTML5, AJAX and CSS3 technology, to provide a look as fluid as it is breathtaking. Since, these implementations are quite new, they require a decently recent browser; Internet Explorer 8+, Firefox 3.5+, and other decent versions of Chrome, Safari, Opera; basically, any new browsers.
The template views include: Sidebar view, Timeslide view, Snapshot view, Mosaic view and Flipcard View. On the top of the view page is a horizontal bar: with site > on the left, using this tab, your can click and type in another website address to view. On the right is a Search box; with which you can search through your posts.

One of the more stylish of the view. Posts are cascaded on the screen, with snippets showing on mouse hover.

Flipcard View on Blogger
My favorite view; it's like Snapshot, only more efficient. Displays all posts by thumbnails as if they were cards. With options at the top for arranging the posts by Recent, Date, Label, Author. Just click on an option and the posts smartly shuffle and spread by your choice. When clicking on a post you can use the J,K,"up","down" shortcuts or just press "ESC" to go Back to All Posts. Blogger Hint: Click Sort by Labels; to get a better look at your tags.
