The new look is not at all easy on the eyes. The dark blue band which shows the differecnt sections makes the headings very faint. It is only 'Announcements' that is clear as it is in red.
Somehow, I also feel that the earlier pastel shades were better. These blue shades just don't suit IRC and are more appropriate for a site like that of a hospital.
Sorry if my views are a bit harsh, but honestly I would like the old look back please.
