The website has been designed to reflect the national character, as well as to include the specialised information available from Karnataka and Bengaluru. This new design is an extension of the newspaper's 2019 revamp, which included a new masthead and tagline, the introduction of a mobile app, and the relaunch of the e-paper. The website now offers a wide variety of features, including online-only opinion pieces, different ways of story-telling such as web stories and news shots, dynamic live blogs of news events as they happen, and high-quality video content. It also provides better opportunities for e-advertisers to get their ads seen by readers, while still allowing users to have a smooth reading experience without disruptive ads.
