Parent article: Welcome to the new LWN.net!
Typically when publications change their design style, they claim that the new design, fonts, layout, etc. are "cleaner" (I have never exactly understood how fonts become dirty, but that is a question for another day).
LWN's old design was one of the cleanest and most crisp on the web. Elegant, too.
I understand the need for periodic change in publications, the desire for new features, etc. However, I would ask the LWN staff to bring up an old and new page side by side and ask themselves: which is more elegant?
I imagine my answer to that question is clear, so if there is any way to customize the new design to look a bit more like the old I would appreciate any pointers.
