Default what happened to format

Is it my computer or is AudiWorld changing formats? I vote for the old one.

I have a message in to Kris to see why the change. Not crazy about the heavier font.

I thought it was 'throwback Wednesday' and had a flashback of the 90s, in terms of web UI. It appears fine on my mobile phone, but on my browser it rates about a 2 vs the older format which was closer to 5. BTW, 5 simply being middle of the road and avg.

I like it!
Much easier to read and the contrast brings out the top of the page way better than before.

Eh…I don't think it will be changed back. But AW will continue to change.
Change is good. Maybe not this change so much, but change in general.

I'm taking the positive approach. Teaching an old dog new tricks! How hard can it be? Beats the hell out of getting that last alternator bolt out...............
