    Phoronix: The Latest Look Of The Phoronix Redesign

    Here's a look at the latest Phoronix.com site redesign. The evolutionary improvements to the site will soon begin rolling out...

    Too wide for portrait

    It's too wide for 1080x1920 - I run my monitors in portrait precisely to avoid vast swathes of wasted horizontal space on many sites, as you can see in the screenshots of the Aurora article:

    but the new layout wastes quite a lot of space on overly-wide sidebars, and doesn't fit into 1080 pixels horizontally.

    I'm sorry for thinking like i'm navigating a site for people with impaired visuals/cognitive problems.

    The old interface was way more useful and complete, not to speak of the design language that wasn't " text here in that rectangle, fill rectangle with green"

    To me it looks like a bad windows 8/wp8 app( and I own a wp8 device, so that's that).

    I would actually be inclined to pay for the old version(or a dark theme).
    (emphasis mine)

    That's precisely why I like it.

    Really, really digging the new design. I take back what I wrote earlier about the colors and all that. This is much easier on the eyes, I like that it respects my font size preference, and I love that it makes better use of available space within the window.

    Two thumbs up, Michael.

    I think the font weight should be heavier for the title text.

    That's only ever been considered as a feature for premium users.

    HTTPS

    Instead of making things look better, I'd prefer it if you added HTTPS to the site.

    I'm going to have to agree on this one: ditch the photo. If you want to have a random images of beer/linux icons, that's totally cool (maybe for Ubuntu articles have an Ubuntu icon, for hard drive articles have a picture of an SSD/HDD, I dunno...).

    I would like the color of the side content panels to be a bit darker. The boundary of the article text and the side panels is not well defined in my eyes because the side panels are such a light gray.

    * Really liking the new font - feels clean and fresh
    * Disliking the caps on the home page navigation bar ("HOME", "ARTICLES AND REVIEW"...). Caps always feel like the screen is yelling at me when I read it
    * "Systems" from "Operating Systems" on the home page is misaligned due to "Systems" being on the next line

    A small correction for my earlier Stylish:

    <code>
    @namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);

    @-moz-document domain("www.phoronix.com") {

    TD#phxcms_content_phx
    {
    background-color: #ffffea;
    }
    }
    </code>

    So, this will make the content area a little warmer since I dislike that hard white.
