I rather like the new design, with a few minor exceptions - the blue bar is way too wide - I think that at most, it should be about 90-100 pixels. And give an option to turn it off in the user preferences. Possibly a way to position it. i'd like to have the blue bar functions at the bottom of the page - they can even be in a blue section down there.
Whatever these people are complaining about the font, that's the one thing that looks very nice to me at the moment. Netscape 4.x for unix always had font problems, and this new design allows my font size adjustment buttons in Konqueror 2.0.1 to work just fine.
I miss a couple of other features, but nothing I can complain about, as I'm sure they're in this new version somewhere as well.
Keep up the good work!
