Re: website... neat hi-tech look.  :)

Suggestion--darken the drop down menus a bit more when in highlight mode--i.e. make less transparent.  For example, when you go "Company" then  "News" .... you'll see the text from the text/graphic below... Its a bit tough to read when you're using an LCD monitor with its typical bad black/grey scales...  so it gets tough to read that.

Other than that, it's great!  ;D

Great site! The good thing I like about it, that at first, you don't really realise something changed, there is just a vague sense of "something is different", then when you take another look, it hits you and the site looks completely renewed...

Vlk, just one suggestion: In “viruses” put a link to “VPS history”, instead of having to go to “viruses”, then “virus incident report form” and then to “VPS history”. Despite that (minor) thing, pretty cool site  8).

BTW virus history is available directly from the title page by clicking on the DATE of the latest VPS release.

it looks very good... One of the best I can say... Its lite and professional... I have to admit that what made me download avast 6 months ago was the fact that avast had the most good looking website and the program interface looked nice... along with the fact that that alwil team has a 16year  experience to these kind of stuff...
IMO avg interface looks ancient

One comment (all else well).
The image on the start side is big.
Could be a problem in small res <1024x768

Also I noticed when installing for a friend yesterday that the menyes get really fuzzy / hard to read, looks like his Internet Explorer scaled the image or something (fit to width)

Hi Vlk
looks good, but you might want to check some of the layout in firefox 1.0 - I've attached a capture...

Opera 7.54 is blocking:
http://www.avast.com/eng/images/web_26.jpg
but showing:
http://www.avast.com/eng/images/web_17.jpg
and:
http://www.avast.com/eng/images/virushelp.gif

Don't know if it something I've set up, but seems strange to not show that one image.

Other than that, looks great from what I've seen.

My experiences is that FireFox sometimes have to small or to big fonts compared to IE and Opera. I don't know why. Fixed it by changing some of the default font sizes in the setup.

its a default installation of Firefox 1 - screen res 1400x1050, I'll have a play with the settings.

Changing the font size down a couple of settings seems to do the trick, but for my screen, it reduces the readability a bit.

George, press Ctrl + Minus on numpad. The page will look OK then.

BTW using the same (typical notebook) resolution as myself... ;)
