The menus mostly - 10px text is almost unreadable for me (I don't have
poor eyesight, just find that at that size there isn't enough pixel to
make a letter. 12px is better - your black text is okay.

I'd much prefer it if I could adjust it to suit though, 120% zoom (in
Mozilla) and I can read it nicely ;o)

Couldn't you have one navigation menu and more pages?  I'm getting
confused by the number of messages per page and the way the menu
doens't tie in with it.

e.g. on the home page, there are sections on web development, media
design, performance solutions and custom applications and another 15
menu options under solutions.

I see your difficulty, with so much to say, but maybe it could be
presented deeper[1] rather than wider[2], if you understand me.
