A new theme for MeFi: Modern

Today we're unveiling a new theme option for MetaFilter. Yes, it's a new design option for MetaFilter for the first time in over a decade, which we are dubbing the "Modern" theme. The new theme is strictly opt-in; no one is being forced to use it and the Classic and Plain-text themes remain as options, so your view of the site won't change unless you want it to. To try out the new theme, select it in your preferences. There is much to explain and show off in this new design and I'll do my best to describe all the thinking that went into the process below.

baby steps

added embedded information about pages viewed

I added embedded information about pages viewed at MetaFilter, per the link tag. If you're using Mozilla, turn on your Site Navigation Bar link this, and you'll see additional buttons when viewing threads, like this. It makes for a nice alternate interface.

Suggest some taglines

no one requested it, but I always wanted to do random images on the main page. The following image shows all the current taglines that popup randomly. They're not all gold, but some of them will be around forever (especially the crack one). Can you think of others? Go ahead and suggest one.
