Anandabazaar Bengali News Site got a new look and now works with Firefox and other browsers

After a long wait, finally, the website www.anandabazaar.in has revamped itself and the new site could be viewed in all major browsers (Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Google Chrome, etc) with latest Adobe flash support. Thanks to AnandaBazaar Patrika for the initiative. Now we can read news on Phones, Tablet PCs and normal PCs.

The new site also has good look and feeling. Fonts are more crispier. I just love reading those articles (Utsav, Patrika, etc) from the links at the bottom of the front page.

For people who are not able to open or view the bengali texts can download the free bengali font from here (Free Bengali Unicode Font - Kalpurush.ttf).

Steps to install font in Windows are:

  1. 1. Download the Kalpurush.ttf font to your desktop
  2. 2. Copy/Install the font to c:\windows\Fonts
  3. 3. Restart your browser and reload the webpage www.anandabazar.in/

The other points listed out in their website on how to resolve viewing problems are:

Hope this helps !!!
