The new theme, visually a close spin-off from the earlier v2.0 theme boasts more Web 2.0, more socially connected and more machine readable (using micro-formats). Although under a bit of indecision, I finally decided to stick to the original pink theme. It’s easier on the eyes and does not cause distraction from the real content.
We are also proud to be running on WordPress 3.0, arguably the simplest to use of all CMS with wonderful power packed features. As a user, I love the new lighter interface, the contextual help on every, bulk updates so you can upgrade 9 plugins at once with a single click. I have also re-coded the HTML to support the great functionalities that HTML5 has to offer as more and more browsers start supporting them. I’ve also decided to dunk IE6 support.
Recently Mani has also started contributing some nice articles. The new theme gives her more space and individuality on the blog, so her followers can look forward to some quality articles from her.
Some more additions like the official Twitter button to count retweets and the Facebook like button gives the site amazing bookmark options. The most amazing thing about the Like button is that you can actually add a comment too while liking it. Two thumbs up to Facebook. They have really good user experience, one of the primary reasons I believe that have led to them flourishing so much.
