    I dont remember what it used to look like anyway :hehe: (was it red?), but imo it now looks like some cheap-ass search engine, you know one of those that just pops up then dies.

    Agh, that's horrible; it made me jump! I'm sure I'll be used to it in a month or so though... Just like after the last changes!

    The only thing i think looks at all different are the edges of "panels" of colour appear to be sort of bevelled which i don't recall seeing before.

    They're always fiddling with the colours, they usually restrict the changes to the categories though. First time I've seen the main page change from their trademark red. I hope they change it back again.

    Think the blue design is much better than the drab red they had :)

    the site is red here, and looks as normal, unless you are referring to the MSN Search advert? :confused:

    Yes I know that was rather scary, wasn't it.

    I had to use IE though, as Firefox doesn't display some of the images the same way, plus all the MSN adverts were blocked. :D

    Wow it's fudgy. I'm glad I just read the stories through RSS feeds in Thunderbird. Just shows as plain text that way.

    All the MS and MSN Search Adverts suggests this is a markerting gimmick - especially as the only ad for the Register is still in Red (bottom left).
