Re: Suggestion for left bar, option
Replying to myself, the latest version seems to have adequately adressed all of my suggestions.
Thank you very much.
Suggestion for left bar, option
For the most part, my opinion on the new design is ``it's different; let's try it and see''. A few things become apparent after only a short time, however. A few `minor' elements of the design could be configurable to great positive effect. In particular:
*The left bar contains very little useful information for the space it occupies. An option to put all of its contents in the right bar would be a big help.
*The two text `tool bars' along the top are too long, causing some text-mode browsers to do terrible things (basically, the overly-wide top bar is forcing a `page width' wider than the terminal width, which results in horizontal scrolling and a complete lack of usability. links is especially painful in this sense, but most textmode browsers have to resort to ugly tricks.
*In my opinion, regardless of whether you use selection boxes or icons, they should be on the same line as the `License' and `Release Focus' entries.
