I liked the old layout better. circuit city ad is always getting in the way. I prefer looking at the center of the screen and glancing toward edges. Meaning important stuff goes in the middle and extra stuff along the sides. The toolbar is nice, could use a slight delay like windows start menu. The Programmers heaven logo looks like it came from a 60's era.
Sorry if I'm giving such a bad rating, but the overall layout is giving me a headache.
