Overall, I like the new design--and I like that it is not at all like CNET. CHOWHOUND had managed to keep its' identity, which is nice.
But I'm going to be nitpicky here...and I know I will be hated, because with your recent overhaul, I know everyone behind the scenes is working extra hard.
Today, the graphics were not aligne--the paste up was "crooked" (does that even make sense?). And whomever is in charge of proofreading...um, you spelled Valrhona wrong.
Other than that, I think you guys over there are doing a great job. And for those folks who said something negative about big photos, etc., etc....I think they are wonderful--not at all precious or cutesy. Love them.
