We spent some time to give the site a face lift. We are working on a lot of changes in the background to improve your experience and some user interface changes come with that.

We aren't ready to release all of the background changes or the interface changes but we are ready to release the main cosmetic changes since they don't need the background changes to be ready.

These changes make browsing the site a lot easier on mobile devices and touch devices. We improved scalling and presentation. There are plenty of places left for improvement but we think we are off to a good start.

As always, we are happy to hear your feedback any time.
