    I suppose this isn't intentional? http://imgur.com/12o56L2

    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.

    Default 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?
