The site looks a bit ugly now that I got used to the retina display. Here are few points that could/should make the site looks crispier :)

  • Update the favicon to support the 32x32 version too
  • The logos could be SVG and a fallback for IE3 to PNG or something, otherwise higher quality PNG for retina
  • All the gravatar images should load the 2x image wherever they are appearing
  • Use icon font for all the icons, you know how it's done

The following image summarises pretty much everything:

Stackoverflow on retina

  • IE has never supported PNG favicons, not even IE 10 /pedant

  • @TimYiJiang no need for PNG favicons when the standard is the .ico, where you can have different sizes

    Maybe this is a duplicate.. but I think the other question has too many words.. this one just summarises the points :)
