Bigger, but getting used to the left hand column is going to take some time. Even so, it's striking!

I like it Dave Thumbs up

I'm thinking with the "tabs" on the left, you now have room to add more whereas when they are across the top, you don't?

I thought the font looked different too, while I was typing but once you finish and read, it looks like it always did.

I think the layout is very good. I like the clear and easily seen fonts, icons and positions at the left column. The four icons above the Home button are clearly understood and easily accessed. (responding from previous thread)

I'm sure it's because we are still in Beta but the icons above Home: Tmail, messages, etc are not live.

And it's difficult to see this tiny type that I see as I'm writing this message. However, the font, once posted is just fine.

I do like the overall look of it.

got itQ

Typeface change in the threads --- love it Thumbs up Thumbs up Thumbs up - great for my eyes!

miss having the items I put in the top menu bar easy to get to when I hit the home button.... they dropped down where I have to scroll to them under the random plant photos. One of them was the ATP Daylily Database which I use all the time, and another the AHS Database link, which was very handy. Wish those links were still where I didn't have to scroll to get to them.

Will play more with it later on today, and fire it up on my other devices!

OK, the icons are live now, so not a problem.

The font is only different as I type, within the message box, Juli. Much smaller.

Firefox, Sharon, or Safari? I'm using Safari, and it's the same.

It's like it's not bold and courier when you key in but once finished, it's bold and big.

FF, Juli.
And yes, just like that, Vic.

The other thing I'm not sure I like is that the search area is difficult to find. Have to scroll down too far to find it.

Ahh.... Yes, in Firefox, it is smaller, and in Courier.

When I am in Safari, it is the same as in the thread once posted.

Hard to see in Firefox when typing. Blech. Thumbs down

I use the search engine a lot, so its location is the only thing that bothers me.

Maybe Dave could put the search box above home and below icons?
