    So far the look is alright for me. However, the forum runs like heck on IE freezing (not responding) going from page to page. Not fond of googles behavioral tracking adds.

    The new background is just a bit too much for my eyes, thank you for leaving in the ability to change back to the previous version. And thanks to all for making this the best site on the Internet.

    If you are worried about privacy and security I would suggest giving Chrome a try. It's faster... more secure, has more privacy settings and has been shown to be the most secure browser out there. Has been "unhackable" at the pwn2own contest 3 years running... IE was hacked, Safari was hacked (in 5 seconds) but not Chrome.

    I think this is the first set of changes since I have been here I don't really care for. But, I have very limited internet access right now, so maybe in the future when I play with it more, I will change my mind. I am particularly leery of the "like" stuff on here, and the effect it may have.

    Sorry for being so late in posting my "I really like the new look" comment. I echo many, this is the best gun related site on the web. Keep up the great work.

    Any idea why the new server does not like IE?

    I know we can all switch to the latest and greatest browsers
    But that game gets tiring after awhile

    I really do like the new look, just not the slow loads with IE

    I wouldn't go so far as to say that the site does not like IE... I just don't like IE. However, the site SHOULD work fine with it. If there are slow downs I would need to hear specifically what is loading slow in it.. the problem is, I'm not aware of any tools for IE that show you this. Ie, firefox and chrome have firebug and ySlow -- but IE does not. This, I think, is one of the reasons more and more people are abandoning IE, they just aren't open enough nor do they make enough tools available for proper troubleshooting.

    Seems much slower after the change! When I realized I could go back to the old style, I did, and the forum sped up again. I will stay with the older style.
