Just to pick a nit.

Move the left side of the screen...cnet forums...feedback&testing...etc to the right side of the screen.

Why?....Think about the folks that don't have a super size monitor or don't have teenage eyeballs that allows them to set the res so the page fits the screen....They have to scroll to see the good stuff.

There's a problem with that...

That was suggested back in November 2006 when the current layout went live, but the nav panel is Cnet-wide (out of Lee's direct control) and, if I'm not mistaken, was said to be infeasible as it would take too much work to avoid breaking other parts of the layout throughout Cnet. At the time Lee had to really push to have the Javascript collapsibility element removed to resolve horrible load times.

I would support such a change, though, should TPTB be open to the suggestion...I created a custom CSS file just for Cnet to make it fit my widescreen and I can only imagine what it's like to go the other way. Sad

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
