Pandora Drops Flash for HTML5 in Site Redesign

Post Date: July 12, 2011

Over the past few months, digital radio service, Pandora, has been making some big announcements. A little more than a month ago Pandora filed for IPO and just a few weeks ago the company announced that they had more than 100 million registered users. Now, Pandora is unveiling a new site design, dropping Flash for HTML5. The site redesign also introduces some more intuitive social features which make it easier for users to share and like songs without leaving the Pandora site.

Unfortunately the redesign was sent only to Pandora One subscribers, so I cannot comment on the interface or experience. They plan on making the new design available to all users in the coming weeks.

“First Pandora IPO’d, then it hit 100 million users and now it is rolling out a redesign

Ditching Flash in favor of HTML5, Pandora will be unveiling its new look first to Pandora One subscribers, rolling out to other users in the next few weeks.

We have yet to get our hands on the new Pandora (look for a walkthrough when we do), but word on the street is that it’s faster and much easier to use. The site hasn’t changed much in terms of layout, although it does have some new features.”
