Is the text supposed to look like this?
I've force-refreshed, win7 enterprise 64, firefox 27 or chrome.
So much better than the old layout. It's more readable and modern, thank you for the update!
Das ist wirklich schrecklich! I have read Phoronix regularly and really liked it, but the new design makes it more difficult to read. Will be there an option to switch to the older version?
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 like the new site. The white and green fits better together with the forums than the gray site did. I also hope there are plans to update the forums. I'd like to see a forum based on FluxBB, like the Arch Linux Forums.

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".
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.
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.
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.
