The main features of the new layout are better readability where we use a larger font with clearer color. The second feature is responsive design.

This is the latest trend where many of the blog readers are using a mobile device such as smart phone or tablet. If you are one of them, you should notice it.

If you see any error or problem with the layout, please contact me or leave a comment.
