Parent article: Welcome to the new LWN.net!
I have been an weekly visitor almost since day 1 of LWN and
an almost daily one ever since LWN/Daily was created,
so I was willing to loose some time making the site look usable
again for me (I really hate all those extra colours, lines,
- The link color color settings don't work. (minor)
- The new site is unbearably slow. (serious)
- On every visit I have to log in again, making the slowness
compliant even more important. This is a killer. I used to
quickly check LWN Daily several times a day, e.g. while
waiting for a compilation to finish, and coming from various
computers (geographical locations even). There is no way that
I will keep doing this if I need to log in each time in order
to get my preferences back and then to discover that there is
nothing interesting to be read.
- I myself am not suffering from the font problems because my NS4 config
is set to "always use my fonts" and my Mozilla config has a minimal
font size set. But if what I read in the other comments is true there
are some serious usabilities issues there as well.
All in all: I've always liked LWN a lot, but if the usability doesn't
get back to the previous level, I'll soon say Sayonara. I hate to have to say it, but
that really is how things stand as far as I am concerned.
