After years of putting off a move to Blogger's new templates, I've finally taken the leap and converted over. The advantages:
• Cleaner look on most HTML5 standard browsers like Chrome, Firefox, Safari and IE9 (earlier versions of Internet Explorer will work fine, but it will look a bit clunkier)
• Better mobile support: it should automatically render correctly on Android, iPhone and iPad browsers
• A much nicer archive: if you scroll down a bit on the right side, you'll see a much more useful archive capability, with post titles of recent articles tagged by date
• Much better navigation: you can now scroll backwards and forwards through the blog using controls at the bottom of each page (I had to write this support myself in the old version and it only worked one way -- i.e., show the prior 10 posts)
