Make Tech Easier Got A New Facelift

It is a brand new year and we have given Make Tech Easier a complete makeover. Our site now has a completely different look and we have also added several useful features.

1. Speed

The main emphasis of this new design was to improve the page load time. Using the Genesis framework (affiliate link), cache plugin and various time-saving techniques, we are able to shave/optimize a big chunk of redundant javascript, CSS and code and utilize the server resources more efficiently. The result is what you see now, a faster loading and more responsive site.

2. Print

We have received plenty of feedbacks that you want to print our articles (we produce useful content days in and out, so why not?) and keep for reference. The previous design was not well suited for printing and some of you have experienced weird lines appearing or wrong alignment. Well, this new theme now comes with a print function on every single post. The print function comes with its custom print stylesheet, so you won’t be seeing weird lines or wrong alignment, and it has been formatted to print out only the necessary content – no ads, no sidebar.


3. New PDF function

For those who don’t like to print, we also provide a new PDF download feature. With the help of Joliprint, we are able to convert the existing content into a PDF file on the fly, with a click of the button.


Email a friend

We have also included an “Email a friend” button where you can quickly and easily email the article to your friend.


Now, back to you, do you like the new design?
