    Who else thinks the devs of this site should make "Fluid HD" the default layout for the site.

    I, for one, am tired of changing it all the time. Cookies don't last long on my computers and never will. So don't bother...

    That's not a bad idea.

    I've tried the Fluid HD, but for some reason, I don't like it. I know it fills my entire screen but it doesn't feel right. I have a 17" HR screen, so with the default setting, I get a lot of white space. The compact view that the default setting gives makes it easier to read and navigates, whereas the default looks to big and messy.

    And oh, maybe the fact that I also don't have ads on my view may also contribute to this view preference.

    I for one don't like the Fluid HD layout and I'm pleased that its not the default.

    I have the same exact setup as you but I use Fluid HD. However, i do have the pages zoomed in a bit in the browser because its a but to small for my liking on HD.

    Hmm.. the zoomed in thing. I never thought of that, so I gave it a whirl. It's actually looks pretty good. I'll try for a couple hours (haha) or days to see if I can like it.

    And the one that I used is the "Fixed" view. What zoom level are you in? I had to zoom in twice to get the correct spacing I wanted. Zooming in again was just too big.

    I prefer the default view myself. I like having the little bit of white space on the sides. I think it helps with readability, kind of like for the same reason newspapers use narrow columns for their articles. It just seems like less reading, though it may not actually be that way.

    I like having the choice, right now i like Fluid HD but sometimes i prefer the current layout..
