looks a lot worse then it used to
i hope they didnt pay for that! wow.... you might as well put scrollbars on those well defined frames :/
Glad there is a topic about this. Wasn't like this a few hours ago.
Put it this way: for a second I wondered why the hell the shitty looking BGR or Engadget website loaded instead of AT.
Not a fan of all these websites going "shitty" Metro.
Looks more like Ars Technica, I like it.
ars use uses gray as a background as its not eye blindingly bright
So the previous site design featured black text on a white background, the differences being that this redesign uses white as the main background color as well (the margins are white instead of blue) and comments are over a white background vs. light blue.
Do you believe the eyestrain is caused by the white margin color or the comment background color, or both?
Do any of these options make it any better?
Just to add here what Anand posted in the comments:
So feedback is welcome (but try to keep it constructive). I'm just the informant here as I have absolutely no say in the web design but since there's been quite a bit of feedback, I'm sure Anand can implement something to satisfy as many users as possible.
