Can't say I'm a fan of the new look

It just kinda shocks you when you open the page. Maybe the colors need work, but then again maybe there needs to be some sort of border?

You've reduced your space for content down to about 25% of your screen real estate. Most people come to your page because they're lost, but the few of us who actually aren't lost have come for the extensive content.

I think iFrames with multiple scroll bars get to be confusing. (On other pages.) Any way to get the effect you want without the multiple scroll bars? Yeah, I know it's just not well handled by our UI setups. For eons we used the scrolling page metaphor, but now we want the menu to stay accessible and the content to scroll.

Pet peeve: iFrames break my scroll up and down buttons. I first have to click in them then I can scroll. The lettering on my page down key has almost worn off.

Good on you for allowing the CTRL and back buttons to work. CTRL+click opens a link in a new tab. Handy!

Metro is going the wrong way. Windows 7 looked fantastic, Metro looks different--bad different. It's kinda like the girl who wears the green shirt and red top with the old '60's plastic colored thick glasses.

  • Sort of influenced by the newer Microsoft "metro"-ish look. Very clean and simple: http://puckdroppersplace.us/nemirror/refresh/ I think I might go something along this way. Any and all input is... more

      • Thank you for the feedback!Erik, Fri Feb 17 5:50pm
        I agree with a lot of your remarks (especially the double scroll bar nastiness). I'll address as many of these as I can in the next mock up. Do you have any examples on a style you like? Also, not... more

          Tell them Netscape 3.0 has a bug and needs to be fixed. Wasn't everyone running 3.1 until Communicator came out? No, I really don't have any examples that come to mind. I just sorta play and see if I ... more
          • I remember doing tech support like 7 years ago or so and people calling up saying they're using the latest version of Netscape. At that point I remember it was some weird version of Firefox-ish that... more

              I think the rendering engine, Mosiac, was common between Netscape and Firefox. (There was a Mosiac browser for a while, looked just like Netscape.) Unfortunately, it looks like Firefox is going the... more

                  It's my "Morons can't seem to get it right" browser.

                    It's been a few years since I had to write any web sites for work and I sort of forgot it existed. I started avoiding it because IE 7 or 8 would bug you with that stupid pop up every time you opened... more

                      To be able that IE exists. To be fair, it's not a bad browser, but Pale Moon is better. The wizard's only 2-3 screens. I just turn everything off or leave it at the default. I bet this is a case... more
