    Official Javadocs are more difficult to read after CSS overhaul

    994973
      I haven't really had to look at Javadocs in a while, and honestly when I do I simply google "java se 6 api <class-name>" which brings up the older JDK 6 javadoc. I saw the new javadocs for the first time and I personally find it much harder to read. The method summary in particular is much worse. The return type and method name are separated by 430px on my screen. See screenshot:

      The font color and size also make it difficult to read. Of course it looks more modern, but IMHO the new changes hinder usability.
