Meta Tech

Meta Tech is written in columns with no lines to separate them which is really difficult read. the text size is varying and hard to read. it has search bar from different websites which are confusing. the background is white and helps to make the images stand out but a colour for the text would help to make it more readable. the page link bar is very long and not well organized making it difficult to read.
