Anyone with me?

Takes bloody ages to load things and I'm on a very quick Mac.

Also, everything seems to be squashed in - like when Sainsbury's extended the shop and squidged all the aisles together thinking no one would notice.

Hello D2D

Probably get used to it, but I agree,it does seem slower to load and smaller.

Loads very quickly on all our Macs at home and work. Layout seems pretty clear.

All our Macs?

You jammy sod.

We've just got the one. A large one though.

It's the only Big Mac I'll ever enjoy.

The kids grew up listening to me singing Apple's praises so by brainwashing from a young age they now refuse to have anything else for their homework and play.

At work anyone mentioning a PC in our studio gets tarred and feathered.

Seems to load quicker on my mac (yes another one, and mine is one of three in our house!). Mind you, that might just be a coincidence, as my broadband is rubbish...

In anticipation of a Mac vs PC thread starting maybe I should mention that went for a run this morning ...

It's slow on a PC as the site appears to be downloading everything from the server every time, rather than looking in my temporary internet files.

Seems OK to me.  Probabl a few teething problems to iron out.

Layout isnt much different.  Give it a try.  There is a Website Bugs tab where you can report any problems or other feedback.

Sorry, not a tab.  Click on Forums and scroll down the screen and the forum you need is there.

Seems to be giving a lot more space over to the ads on the right thus squashing all the posters details. I can take it or leave it really

I feel like I'm driving a left hand drive car.

Know what I mean?

Not very impressed

I can't find a bloody thing!

And I used to be able to navigate this site with my eyes closed....

What was wrong with it before? Why should we reinvent the wheel?

BDB - best festive make-over I've seen so far.  Good effort fella!

Change is the only constant, I believe...

LB - it looked about 10 years old.  Positively antique in interweb terms.  New layout give more space to advertising, which is where RW make their money.  They are a business after all.  Still easier to find anything than on Fetch.  I can't find a bloomin thing there.

I'm sure more changes will come.

Phil - thanks squire

I like the new layout.
Works for me.
Better spread out I say.

I don't like it.  It is a cheap immitation of the US site.  The US site looks good (although their forums are tricky to navigate).  Here they have cocked it up.  The font is wrong, the font sizes are wrong, the layout is crap, there are missing elements (that used to make life easy - bookmarks, next page, previous page, etc). 

/end rant

Its looking good on my blackberry - ads are all tucked away at the bottom of the screen.
