    While the changes seem not to anoying as expected from the screenshot, there seem to be issues with the iPad browser not displaying the left row of the navigation (COMPUTER, DISPLAY DRIVERS, GRAPHICS CARDS, MEMORY, MOTHERBOARDS, PROCESSORS, SOFTWARE, STORAGE, OPERATING SYSTEMS)

      I Like It!

      Hi Michael,

      I like the new design - I have not run into any issues yet - but I am sure that if there are bugs they will be reported

      keep up the awesome work!

        A small correction for my earlier Stylish:

        <code>
        @namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);

        @-moz-document domain("www.phoronix.com") {

        TD#phxcms_content_phx
        {
        background-color: #ffffea;
        }
        }
        </code>

        So, this will make the content area a little warmer since I dislike that hard white.

          I'm going to have to agree on this one: ditch the photo. If you want to have a random images of beer/linux icons, that's totally cool (maybe for Ubuntu articles have an Ubuntu icon, for hard drive articles have a picture of an SSD/HDD, I dunno...).

          I would like the color of the side content panels to be a bit darker. The boundary of the article text and the side panels is not well defined in my eyes because the side panels are such a light gray.

          * Really liking the new font - feels clean and fresh
          * Disliking the caps on the home page navigation bar ("HOME", "ARTICLES AND REVIEW"...). Caps always feel like the screen is yelling at me when I read it
          * "Systems" from "Operating Systems" on the home page is misaligned due to "Systems" being on the next line

            HTTPS

            Instead of making things look better, I'd prefer it if you added HTTPS to the site.

              That's only ever been considered as a feature for premium users.

                I think the font weight should be heavier for the title text.

                  i don't understand, why exactly do you people like the new design? it's low density, it's very bare, dichromatic, and the list can go on and on.
                  The old interface was way more useful and complete, not to speak of the design language that wasn't " text here in that rectangle, fill rectangle with green"

                  To me it looks like a bad windows 8/wp8 app( and I own a wp8 device, so that's that).

                  I would actually be inclined to pay for the old version(or a dark theme).

                    (emphasis mine)

                    That's precisely why I like it.

                    Really, really digging the new design. I take back what I wrote earlier about the colors and all that. This is much easier on the eyes, I like that it respects my font size preference, and I love that it makes better use of available space within the window.

                    Two thumbs up, Michael.

                      I'm sorry for thinking like i'm navigating a site for people with impaired visuals/cognitive problems.

                        Too wide for portrait

                        It's too wide for 1080x1920 - I run my monitors in portrait precisely to avoid vast swathes of wasted horizontal space on many sites, as you can see in the screenshots of the Aurora article:

                        http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...tem&px=MTU5NzE

                        but the new layout wastes quite a lot of space on overly-wide sidebars, and doesn't fit into 1080 pixels horizontally.
