It has a more modern look and feel -- search is moved out of the main text
flow. I think it's a big improvement personally.
I did some testing -- mostly good results.
Linux/Epiphany -- fine (minor chopping of logo on left side)
Linux/Firefox -- fine (minor chopping of logo on left side)
Linux/Galeon -- fine (minor chopping of logo on left side)
Linux/Konqueror -- Search did not render Google logo, instead a button with
'Google Search' (doesn't quite look right). Also, no
rollover display on left side menu. This is Konqueror
Win98/IE 6 -- fine
Win98/Firefox -- fine
Win98/Netscape 7 -- fine
WinXPSP2/IE 6 -- fine
WinXPSP2/Firefox -- fine
Couple minor thoughts:
1) I noticed slow loading of the W3C graphics. I think in the final version
we should make these local to the boost site (or ditch them).
2) Can we expand the search box a bit? I think it would make it more obvious
and since your design nicely flows the text adding a bit more room wouldn't
really change the page much.
Anyway, excellent work!
