    I prefer RSS and I was premium member. But this bug made that subscription useless and the fact that after so many years it's still here made me a bit bitter.

    Actually it would have already been a big improvement if phoronix.com was easily linked from the forums section.
    My usual official ad-free browsing was like this: go to phoronix.com, see a lot of blocked ads. Click on phorums. Click on log in, log in on the login failure page. Then edit the url.
    I haven't seen a faster route than that to easily get logged in.
    Of course I can brows the ad version so you get some extra income ;-).
    Same here, I was using ad-block plus so I only saw the ads on my phone. It was super annoying to have to visit the forums each time to get the single page experience. I was considering not renewing my subscription because there was little benefit. Now I'm reconsidering and will likely renew my subscription. Thanks Michael for finally fixing this!

    As are news archives, e.g.: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...ree%20Software

    Layout is a bit off on Firefox

    On the home page, the list of articles section seems to be pretty wide, and comes very close to the advertisements. It would look better if it was slightly narrower.

    I like the timestamp and direct link to comments page, very nice!

    I noticed this morning that, indeed the timeout session is extended, and I got a mostly ad-free experience this morning on the first visit to an article.

    The one outlier was the intellitext in articles, which still showed up until I visited the forums once. Not sure if that's an easy one to fix or not.

    Thanks for the work Michael. These recent improvements should hopefully help to bump the premium subscriber rate up quite a bit, and it'll definitely keep me in the subscriber bucket.
