Some tips...

Much improved over old design - some little notes you might take into consideration:

1) Using CSS to reduce the BODY padding (and manually add it again as margin for the content area) so that the header doesn't have a white border around it.

2) Maybe the menu-bar (including the 10+ hints thing) could be more contrasting (blue BG color?)... but ok as is

3) Change the comments over from the light blue (from old theme) to a more vivid blueish (new theme)?

4) Footer is still purple gradient!

Although it won't win any graphic design awards - it is a great improvement.

As an aside, MacOSXHints has proved useful for me for many years, but I haven't signed up as a commenter until today.

And also - like the new icons much. To those who say the white background is too intense - I disagree, but create a bookmark of this:
javascript:(function(){var%20newSS,%20styles='*%20{%20background:%20#e3e3e3%20!%20important;%20color:%20black%20!important%20}%20:link,%20:link%20*%20{%20color:%20#0000EE%20!important%20}%20:visited,%20:visited%20*%20{%20color:%20#551A8B%20!important%20}';%20if(document.createStyleSheet)%20{%20document.createStyleSheet(%22javascript:'%22+styles+%22'%22);%20}%20else%20{%20newSS=document.createElement('link');%20newSS.rel='stylesheet';%20newSS.href='data:text/css,'+escape(styles);%20document.getElementsByTagName(%22head%22)[0].appendChild(newSS);%20}%20})();
(drag link here into your menu bar) Change Style and click it when you get to a part of any website whose background you find to white (it will also change a dark-light scheme too) including MOSXHints to a greyish color. (you can change color by replacing #e3e3e3 in the script with anything... Script modified version of one by Robert, commenter at 456bereastreet.

Reply didn't go to right place - so...

The link above does NOT work because MacOSXHints removes the javascript: part for security. So just copy and paste the orange text above and add as bookmark.
