It is kind of hard to find things, but I guess I will get use to it. It's hard to teach an old dog new tricks. I do like the larger print though because I am an aging Baby Boomer! :)

Don't like it at all. Very difficult. Old format was much more reader friendly.

The text is scalable. Try holding down the control key on your keyboard and advancing the mouse wheel on your mouse (should you have one.)

Site looks ok in firefox.
