In reply to: The new layout is "interesting".
Parent article: Welcome to the new LWN.net!
I'll go further than kune on the colors: There's an option on
the (read: at least on my) browser to set visited and unvisited colors.
It'd be nice to
see them in effect. Setting that and stuff like font sizes (and maybe fonts, even) feels like you want to work in TeX. TeX is great, but HTML is
getting the info to the reader, rather than about beautiful design. It's
wonderful when beautiful design is there, but as soon as it interferes with
legibility or navigability (on, I claim, any browser), it's time to ditch
Sorry, I bet you put a lot of work into the appearance, but if there's a
way to tell the browser: ``If your user has set a
preference for this, skip setting the site's version'' would probably be
more comfortable for most people.
That said, note that it all comes under niceties. This is certainly gonna
continue as my top site, and I really appreciate the hard work you
all do to get out such high-quality news. (It certainly beats the two
``real-world'' newspapers offered around here.)
Finally, thanks for the Visa donation method. You've got my dough, and
can expect more next year. :-)
