Interesting how people have different perspectives. I find the new format extremely easy to read. Well spaced, minimal interference and readable fonts. The old site gave me a headache. The actual content was buried among protruding ancillary data and you had to scroll past vast areas of white space to get to the meat of the next post. Plus, the old site was pretty much useless on mobile devices.Right now my major beef is, it's not very - DENSE. As in, needlessly wide margins here and there, and posts are comparatively huge so that I can see very little at once on a laptop.
