A few things I will say:
The red lettering looks odd to me.
Very bulky looking with the large size font and all caps.
The drop down menus are a lot better now!
When you say your "working on a darker background" how dark do you mean? Like white font on black dark? I worry it would contrast too much with a lot of the sites I visit and bother my eyes.
When I mouse-over an ingredient for a recipe, the pop-up opens to the right and then flicks back to the left when it notices it has gone past my monitors boarder. It is fine with the armor/weapons browsing since they are along the left, but is kind of annoying when looking through ingredients for recipes.
