As you might have noticed, we look a little different today. I have implemented a few style changes, and we are looking pretty sleek.

1. The font, of course...

Changed the font to a smaller font size

2. The NavBar

You may have noticed a change in the NavBar. It us updated a little bit with a bunch more features. Also the breadcrumb trail adds a sense of depth to the forum.

3. The Quote Thing

There was a change to the way quotes display on Mac-Forums.com. Quotes are now surrounded by images, which makes the emphasis really nice to look at.

EDIT: Changed the quote layout to a new design. This change was needed do to the image requirements of the earlier mod.

As always, discussion is encouraged...

The quote window looks like bubbles to me. You know the one you find in Comic books. All I need is for them to point back to the speaker. lol

As a recommendation, of course this is not required, I would suggest that you change your setting for Font Smoothing (Anti Alias) to "font size 8 and smaller" like depicted in the bottom of this screenshot :
