    This forum is nigh unusable on mobile. Multiple video ads playing simultaneously at the top and right. Eating processor cycles and killing battery life. Causing massive keyboard lag and frequent page crashes/reloads. Trying to make posts on mobile is an exercise in frustration.

    This is the only site where I have this problem. I have to get on an actual PC with an ad blocker installed in order to have an acceptable experience on NBR.

    Thanks! That is much better now. No more video ads.

    Plus, vB 3.x is easier on the eyes. :D

    all the other styles are synonims of visual cancer anyways


    maybe the designer have eye cancer so it looks fine, but not to us

    It looks more old-school. But given the amount of visual puke that passes as modern UI/UX design these days, that's only a good thing. :D
