Chilling Which skin do you use??

I've just switched back to the AO modern skin.
There was a lot of controversy when it was implemented, but I'm going to give it another go.

Which one do you use??

Re: Which skin do you use??

Modern: The less light that enters my eyes the better, especially on my very bright laptop. Hate excess light in general actually, like brightly lit super markets for example. Maybe that's just me but I find it alot easier on my eyes.

I think it's the default, so some people probably haven't even tried the other setting

Re: Which skin do you use??

.........since most comments are in favour of Modern,..... for what its worth.... my experience is that I find Classic far easier to read. Could be something to do with age. If determined only by years I must be "classic" myself ....... but not in other respects.

I have tried Modern for a few days and at least three times and still keep going back.

Modern is the superior skin by far, classic will not be supported forever!

That'll be why Oz hasn't signed up to Kyoto then?

Classic, but I think I'll give modern a go.
