I’ve removed the menu on the top of the front page from the site for now. Since I launched it, I’ve been playing with it on and off, listening to feedback, and trying to determine whether or not it adds or substracts from the user experience of the site. When I got back from vacation, I loaded up kottke.org in the browser and just didn’t like the looks of the thing sitting up there. Don’t know why exactly, but since it still does that flicker thing in Firefox and doesn’t work in Opera at all (thanks to everyone for sending in their fixes, BTW), it’s probably for the best. I’m going to work on it some more and it will probably return in some modified form soon.
