  1. Wow, the new sites look fantastic. Nice work!

  2. slick new look ! as humbly as I can, I offer a request: can you put more of the article content back on the main blog page? your blog here has been (for some years now) the single most fun web page on the ‘net to come home and load up, and now all that fun stuff seems to have gone behind a curtain. (a very nice looking one.) it might seem a trivial barrier, and heck, all the trendy big sites do it this way, but I’m pretty sure you’ll end up with less eyeball-hours in total, and certainly less dwell time on the good stuff. (I guess I just selfishly want Adafruit to stay the best blog in the electronics-making world! cheers!)

  3. Well done to the Adafruit team. Pulling something off like this is really difficult and not upsetting people who are familiar with your old site. Looks fantastic and much better.

  4. Looks great. I’m a big fan of the responsive mobile support the new site has.

    The new design looks great, but I don’t see how to view my wish list, except by adding something to it. In the upper right, there is only an icon for my shopping cart.

  6. @james – it’s in your account, however we’ll be adding that text back soon at the top too!

    Ah, I see now. I didn’t notice the link before. Thanks for the prompt reply.

  8. WOH!

    Love the massive product pictures. I guess I need to order more stuff…
