(Y) I quite like the changes to the front page. Would like to see a different font being used though or for the return of font options.


Yea if you like being blinded by the light! :)

Wonder what else is going to be removed when others complain about it. Segoe UI better not go.

I had the forums and front page both set for Midnight and the FP is still using it. That's fine with me. :)

And here I thought I'd get complaints about the lack of rounded corners.

Will use Segoe if you have it, will use Helv/Arial if not.

Thanks for making the news a section I won't visit anymore. White background? your kidding. I had no problem with the themes on IE/Chrome or Firefox.

Bring back the themes, I Miss the dark look :(

Are you serious? Almost every website's content is on a white background.

No more font-settings? I have OSX Lion with Safari, and Segoe font looks bad and blurry (only on neowin) :/ Please bring back at least one more font (for example: arial or tahoma). :rolleyes:

Fixed by installing "Segoe UI" fonts from Windows 7 into OSX. Now the fonts are all good.
(I only had "light" version of segoe font in Lion, I think that was the problem.)

I do not like the darker background on the front page at all. Pegasus with the lighter background was my favourite (Y)

Looks like crap, far too bright for those of us with eye problems it literally glares now! Dark is better, for me at least. This coupled with the forum issues Im having it's adios Neowin ...

I can appreciate browser compatibility issues, but I can't read the bolded default font thread titles without squinting. Gotta have some font options...I was liking Tahoma

Agreed. I liked the light grey bars on the background ... I don't know why they were all changed to dark versions of blue?

Now it all looks bad. :(

A theme with a lighter shade of blue would be nice.

Fact is, that with the lovely options we had we were driving people away due to browsers crashing on Neowin. Now it could be down to add-ons and betas and alpha builds, but we need a site that works all the time, on all browsers.


I can confirm that all my problems with Neowin on Google Chrome stable which were menus not displaying, bad fonts and choppy scrolling have now been fixed on the Main page with this update, just waiting for the Forums to be updated now as all those problems still persist on 'this computer' in the Forums.
