  3. I don't care for the new format. It is very faded and hard to see. Too white and light gray.

    The old format was easier to see. This new one is too faded. Gray on white just doesn't work.

  4. The old format was easier to read

    1. It's very slow. Moving the cursor back to correct an error is even slower.
    2. Reverse type (white on a color) is never a good idea, as each screen user gets a slightly different result.
    3. Sans-serif reverse type, using a thin font makes the whole page much harder to read.
    4. There seems to have been little user-testing. I know, I know, if it's free, the users become the beta test. This isn't working for me.

  5. THEMES

    These new themes are not attractive!!! There should be theme that are stimulating and inspirational. Themes like nature, geography, landscape, astronomy and other subjects.

  12. Background Settings

    You should allow people to customize their own background, by uploading pictures. Thank you for allowing me to share my opinion.

  13. I prefer a light background with BLACK ink.

    My 62 year old eyes don't want to deal with white font. Please have at least 1 choice with a black font.

  17. Make the search ribbon at the top of the window smaller (vertically) - why is there so much wasted space around that???

  18. the 'width of the ad section should be less wide; it takes up too much space and is only annoying!

    so everyone agrees the add space is only annoying your followers--
    companies need to wake-up and stop annoying their clients with their invasive adds- terrance Sydney: who agrees?

  19. all the backgrounds are too dark and the white background is too bright

    provide some pastel coloured backgrounds which are more restful on the eyes, particularly for more elderly users!
