New blog theme: fligstripe

This morning I pushed out my fifth blog theme, fligstripe. For Firefox and Webkit users, it’s 100% CSS using overlayed gradients. For Opera and IE users, it’s 100% screenshots of what it would look like if their browser supported CSS3 gradients.

I was going for a really clean design, which meant removing things like category navigation, tag clouds, and even the search box. I’m also using a few new third-party plugins and libraries:

I have a good feeling about this theme and hope it will last at least a year before I start to dislike it, as my previous 2 themes have only lasted a few months.

    scrolling is a bit jerky on my hardware acceleration blacklisted win7 machine on latest nightly. i imagine it’s better for people who are lucky enough to get the hw accel.

      Hmm, someone else on Windows mentioned scrolling problems as well. I didn’t have any problems on any of the machines I tested with but will have to look into this. Thanks

      Scrolling is very jerky for me as well. I’m using FF 3.6.13 under Win7Pro on an Inspiron 1525. Hope that helps.
