Behind the Screen

When darkness falls …

with 5 comments

When darkness falls, sometimes you can see things more clearly! We improved our web site readability last week by changing our font colors to a much darker gray. I’ve been hearing things like “Thank you, I can see again!” from people who noticed and guessed I might know something about the change.

We have a bit more tweaking of our CSS to go to increase readability, particularly on the left and right columns. Then, I’ll start working with our marketing folks on making the default font larger without breaking the format of our existing pages. Thanks to those of you who appreciated and acknowledged the change, and for continually reminding me to fix it!

  1. Thanks. One remark to the link of Home and the CG icon:
    The link on these to places doesn’t lead to the main CG webpage but – depending on the context – to blogs-home or dn-home. Wouldn’t it be better if at least one of the two links would lead me to the CG homepage, i.e. http://www.codegear.com?

  2. It’s nice that you are working on the web pages. I hope you could look at the scripting errors on qc.codegear.com soon (qcmain.aspx line 461 “document.forms[”] has no properties”).

  3. Atle, we are working on a new QC web site that should address the scripting errors. Thanks for your patience!

  4. Hans-Peter,

    We definitely need to have a page that points to the CodeGear home. I’ll review it with the rest of the web site stakeholders and see if we can all agree on something. Thanks for the reminder 😉

  5. How about allowing us older developers to increase the page fonts.

    Ctrl+mousewheel = less eye strain
