Eyestrain time again

This latest "ugh-grade" has replaced some of the formerly-red areas with white. As has happened previously, before the Chowers-That-Be returned more grays and reds to the page, there is too much glare.

    I just noted the same thing in the Site Header thread, greygarious. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/827384

    WHY they keep returning to the major blocks of WHITE GLARE is beyond me.

    NO...it doesn't look good.
    YES - it's harsh on and strains the eyes.

        Fixing the color on the user end is a fine idea and I thank you for posting it. Nevertheless, from a design perspective making such an action necessary or advisable is horrendous. Assuming that the site is trying to attract and maintain visitors, the snow blinding effect of the pages is not likely to help.

        The upgrade is horrible. The grey/white is so harsh. why is there a need to have 2 inch boarder on left & right empty. Make the discussion wider.

        Please bring back the comfy red. it was much more inviting unless you just want us to spend less time at Chowhound.
