    Confirm. Even though I'm not elderly, and I'm on a PC, I really need to squeeze my eyes to read.
    I do like how links are now easier to spot, however.

    Re: The new shade of blue

    I like how the blue stands out but would also prefer a darker shade for greater contrast.

    Re: The new shade of blue

    We'll get there in the end- we have older eyes and colour blindness looking at the links in different ways. At my age and with my eyes, I would prefer darker colours.

    And at every change, we do get people defending the old , even though they'd been against it when it was introduced. The old one is always better, even if you didn't like it when it were new. The links actually look a little bit less garish to me today.

    Re: The new shade of blue

    Better?
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    Re: The new shade of blue

    It is for my eyes. I only speak for myself, though.

    Re: The new shade of blue

    It's better but not much better. Can we increase the contrast?

    For me, that's much better. Thank you, Red5.
