Gear Talk has a New Look!

OK, so it's not Earth-shattering news but I updated the Gear Talk site today. It was looking a bit stale and too Web 1.0 so I thought it was time for an upgrade. I tried to retain some familiar elements while giving the site a cleaner, more user friendly look and feel. It's a lot wider which should make reading easier and I have more room to make video players bigger. I hope this all contributes to a better visitor experience. Let me know what you think. Does it suck or is it better?

Hi Jason!

I like the new look but I have a bit of a problem reading the text on the right hand side due to the background colour.

That said, change is a good thing!

Hope I got most of it right so you understand what I mean...

Thanks everyone! A question, when you scroll down, is it slower than it used to be with the old design?

Like the new look jason! Looks cleaner and smoother than the old one. I don't really see a difference in scrolling down. Excited to see new posts and videos soon!

Scrolls fine for me. Just need to let all the elements load first. Glad to see it wider as I was having issues with the videos. Nice work.

Ok now I get it.
Its only at the computer at work it doesnt work, probably due to an old browser...
At home it looks fine.

It's much better. I really like it. Certainly doesn't seem slower and frankly, it is much easier to read. It looks more professional too.
