@cleverdevil I think it looks ok. But I tend to use Safari reading mode a lot. 😉

@cleverdevil In addition to TB-L’s “Cool URLs don’t change”, there should be a corrolary: Cool web pages degrade gracefully and are usably backwards-compatible (this phrasing needs some workshopping ;-) )

I think it looks fine, and of-the-era (other than the photo seeming a bit large for that time), so I’d say it’s a success. Frankly, I’m amazed that Classilla can display current SSL/TLS content at all, since IIRC Cameron stopped working on it a decade-plus ago!
