Regulars / Best of the Web

Rounding off the week with Best of the Web

Best of the Web is here to ease you safely into the weekend like a La-Z-Boy recliner. Grab some snacks, kick off your shoes and lean back and relax while you catch up on some of the best stuff the It’s Nice That team has seen on the web this week. From cats appearing in tube stations to a post-Brexit design manifesto, it’s a comforting mix of what the internet has to offer. And if you’re feeling a bit thirsty after all that, hydrate with a can of who to follow on social media.
