Sorry, it's Friday afternoon, and I'm lazy :)
Main problem... others have said it, but it's far too wide. A well-
designed web page fits my browser window, not the other way around.
I have an adequately-large screen (1280x854), but I normally like to
keep my browser window approximately square (and a bit less than the
height of the screen), which keeps the line lengths of most pages
readably-short. I find anything wider than that to be unpleasant to
look at, let alone read. If a website forces me to resize my window,
I usually just go somewhere else instead.
My only other comment is about the GNOME logo at the top. It's not
aligned with anything, it's not centred, and it's too far away from
the GUADEC logo to look as if they're grouped together. It just
looks like it's been put there for no particular reason and nobody
really knows what to do with it :/
That apart, it's a nice clean theme, and if those things were sorted
out it would be pretty good. (How does it do on accessibility?)
