I like the new look! It's a bit closer to Johan's google-esque CSS.

I notice that the contents box is now quite small in relation to the
module description on most pages. Perhaps the font in it should be
bigger? Same thing for the portabilty/stability/etc-box.

I had to upgrade my Firefox to get the buttons to render correctly.

In Chrome on Windows all the code blocks have scroll bars.
