Its dreadful.

Like Jamie I had to check I had the correct version of site I thought I had loaded the one for idiots,

"Pics at the top of nearly all stories - visual is good, right?" NO it bloody well isn't. I suspect most of your readers are literate and can understand the meaning of an article quite well with out requiring pictures. Although I do forget what a mouse is or struggle to visualise a switch without some form of memory jogger.

That's not including any comments re fixed width etc. that my fellow posters have covered.

We (the readers) are not fools and I suspect will dislike the "new and improved" style immensely.

Oh yes while I'm posting- Please bring back the carousel. It was probably the most endearing feature of the front page bringing articles I mas have otherwise missed to my attention..
