The New Phoronix Site Design
Phoronix: The New Phoronix Site Design
As most Phoronix readers will have noticed, the new Phoronix.com site design is now live for all users as of a few hours ago...
Looks very nice I think increasing height of Categories listed on left sidebar will make them easier to recognize on first sight. May be something between 2em-3ems?
And a few minor improvements:
- Giving more vertical space/padding/margin for Phoronix logo on page header
- Keeping same column width for articles in whole page (see page bottom overflowing into the right sidebar)
- Giving a little more vertical padding for article summary (about 1em) and maybe 2em between articles
This. Seriously, remove it.

I agree. I think they should be a little bit larger. After tinkering around with the CSS I think "td#phxcms_content_left ol li" should change the text-size to something in the 1.3-1.4em range and the line height to something in the 1.8-1.9em range (which, to me, looks large but not too large as 2 or 3 em did).

Considering the use of Adblock: I disabled adblock for phoronix a long time ago, however, I still use ghostery which basically disables tracking me in the web. Using ghostery, no ad is displayed on phoronix. I wouldn't mind seeing ads on phorinix, however, I don't wan't to be tracked. Is there any way around this issue?
On my iPhone 4S the text renders in ugly and irritating bold! Aparrently the iPhone renders the bold by doubling the font, making it look shadowy and blurry. However I like that the mobile version now has the articles in the leftmost column, such that horizontal scroll is no longer needed.
I see the same old design and layout. I see different fonts and, maybe, a slightly different nuance of green. That'd be it.
I wouldn't call it a "new site design", in my opinion, just a light make up.
