Thread: Experimenting With No "Hover Ads" On Phoronix

    Where do I donate? The "make a PayPal donation" text just links to the PayPal front page and I don't see any PayPal buttons kicking around in the site template.

    That's easily doable with a bit of ajax.

    I don't mind those mouseover text ads, I've become quite adept at avoiding them over the years, it's pretty much second nature now.

    Yeah, they're incredibly annoying until you learn how to avoid them and then they become a non-issue.

    This, I wish there was a way to set a permanent cookie (or at least a long lived one).

    Would surely buy one of these.

    Why not just go first to the forum area for new Phoronix articles, and pick articles to read from there rather than from the main page ? You get an automatic login and I find the denser list of articles preferable to the more spaced-out presentation on the main page.

    My reading is generally driven by twitter, so I arrive at the article page rather than elsewhere.

    How about a mobile-friendly site?

    Add where already enables on all my favorite websites... but I'm curious about the outcome.

    Also never knew these 'hover adds' where that interesting... make you think about the amount of "mouse" readers out there
