    That's only ever been considered as a feature for premium users.

    I think the font weight should be heavier for the title text.

    i don't understand, why exactly do you people like the new design? it's low density, it's very bare, dichromatic, and the list can go on and on.
    The old interface was way more useful and complete, not to speak of the design language that wasn't " text here in that rectangle, fill rectangle with green"

    To me it looks like a bad windows 8/wp8 app( and I own a wp8 device, so that's that).

    I would actually be inclined to pay for the old version(or a dark theme).

    (emphasis mine)

    That's precisely why I like it.

    Really, really digging the new design. I take back what I wrote earlier about the colors and all that. This is much easier on the eyes, I like that it respects my font size preference, and I love that it makes better use of available space within the window.

    Two thumbs up, Michael.

    I'm sorry for thinking like i'm navigating a site for people with impaired visuals/cognitive problems.

    Default Too wide for portrait

    It's too wide for 1080x1920 - I run my monitors in portrait precisely to avoid vast swathes of wasted horizontal space on many sites, as you can see in the screenshots of the Aurora article:

    but the new layout wastes quite a lot of space on overly-wide sidebars, and doesn't fit into 1080 pixels horizontally.
