History, Not Favourites #2: All Great!
This is an update on my previous post with the same title (which I cannot find to add to).
In that first post I complained about how the favourites entries kept changing with visits to various sites. However, I noticed that if I set my own personal preferences one by one (via the little cog tool), they stopped changing and I got a favourites bar that stays there no matter what other pages I visit. The only (for me minor) complaint is that the names of these new favourites entries are very cryptic (e.g., CR, or MR) and it takes a little getting used to. But this is no big deal.
Therefore, with this issue removed, I must add my voice to the apparent minority of people (what is it with all this anger in the feedback?) who like this. In fact, I love the new interface, and above all I love the FANTASTIC images that open each time - I have discovered some great photographers on Flickr through this. Thanks, Yahoo!. :-)
