The Latest Optimizations and Bug Fixes

I just rolled out a large list of changes that include performance and touch optimizations and bug fixes. Most of them are subtle touches like adding consistency to some color changes and tweaking behaviors so they are a little more appropriate for both touch and mouse interaction.

A few that you may be more interested in are:

- Touch gestures now work on Opera Mobile on Android, and on every other Android browser I've tested. The exception is changing the font size by pinching. I've only been able to get that working on the iPhone.

- Pinch to scale font size now works on a laptop with a touchpad capable of recognizing pinch events.

- An error will now be shown when a request times out. This will usually be due to a loss of network connection on a mobile device.

- Any item from the previous year will show the year in addition to the month and day.
