In the top right-hand corner of Salon's home page today you'll find a new feature, 5 Things. We're hoping you'll grow to find it indispensable. It's designed to be a quick, real-time guide to the five things you need to know about, right now, all over the Web. We'll include breaking news stories, must-read investigative features, irresistible viral videos, great celebrity buzz or unclassifiable content that we just really think you'll want to see. We'll update it throughout the day.
Unlike the giant social-bookmarking sites, or all of those attempted Drudge Report rivals out there, 5 Things is a streamlined feature designed to filter out the clutter and bring you five key headlines at a time. We hope you'll find it essential -- and also help make it so by sending your tips to firstname.lastname@example.org. Let us know what you think.
