    Can we expect a mobile friendly phoronix?

      Actually, now there is almost no page at all - just very big text and no graphic elements at all with white background, "so hard to do, so modern".

        You probably also could have chosen a better image.

        I view most webpages in high zoom (like 115%) and that may cause partially the bad experience.
        I don't know if this post is ironic or not, but watching pages at 115% isn't really a common use case. To me, the new fonts are a bit too large, so perhaps you can scale down to 100% now? Check it out and see what you think.

        Why do you think it is more difficult to read? In what way, I mean? I think Michael needs more informative feedback than "it's worse!" to improve it.

        To Michael: I think the new design is an improvement, but to me it feels like there is some needed tweaking still to be done. The article font is a bit too large, which creates a little bit to much spacing in the articles. I like the wider main column, more adapted to a modern high-resolution monitor.

          Better then /.

          The new design of slashdot also features a bigger font size and less informationdensity, but somehow phoronix got it right.
          It all comes down to abandoning the margin on the side, even for widescreen layout.

            I don't know if you actually read the articles but:

            Over the next few days will be more tweaks and modifications so please check back for updates; more mobile optimizations, hopefully some new Phoronix Premium work, trying to sort out an iPhone font rendering issue, and some other modifications.

                Definitely easier on the eyes.
                I would just make the background a bit dark (less white) and the text a bit lighter (less dark), much like the right panel...

                Feels a bit like Office 2013 (too washed out). Not as much as Office, but still.

                  The design is great! It also looks like you dailed down the ads to an acceptable level. I have now added Phoronix to my AdBlock whitelist.

                        Problem with image centering

                        on windows 8.1 + chrome browser , I see images not centered but shifted on the right edge, partially off-screen!

                        with firefox all is fine.

                        PS: I really don't like the font and the font size: it's too big!!!!

                          Well, it's not like the old design was the epitome of human art, so I can't complain. Just need to get used to it I guess, though if I knew how to css...

                            Yours looks basically the same as on Debian stable with Iceweasel (Firefox) 24.3.0. Everything works fine.

                              It's not an OS or web browser issue. The problem is that not all users like the edge smoothed fonts and we stick to pixel fonts. Because of that we have disabled font antialiasing and the result you can find on the screenshots.

                                You probably also could have chosen a better image.

                                I view most webpages in high zoom (like 115%) and that may cause partially the bad experience.
                                I also view pages slightly zoomed in (120%), and in the new version of the site the article font is simply too large compared to, for example, the font used in posts in the forums. I think it should be comparable in size, so switching from the site to the forums does not force the eyes to do two backflips to adjust.

                                I like the pic, though!

                                Would some benevolent soul be kind enough to update the phoronix Stylish theme please?
