Minecraft's official website gets a long-awaited makeover

The Microsoft-owned developer Mojang has relaunched the official website for its popular sandbox game Minecraft. The new look includes faster ways to find and download every version of the game along with other features.

The new Mincraft.net is a welcome change from the old version which has changed very little from the design that was put in place when the game was first released in 2010. Mojang's blog stated:

The new site has all the features you might be used to, but it's prettier and faster. It also scales better on phones, tablets, and neon-lit-ugly-rigs with their monster monitors. Remember that, like everything Mojang, we're going to be iterating upon this thing for the foreseeable future.

Mojang is already working on yet another major update to the Minecraft site, which will add more community features and offer more information on the game's developers and its future plans.
