I think we're making progress. Thoughts On The November Update.

Recommended Posts

Do what you want.  You know there are options, if you decide not to take advantage of them, no one can force you.  But I, for one, will no longer bother offering you suggestions if you insist on dismissing them outright, so that you can continue complaining about the same things over and over again.

First, I find this to be a very promising direction and I hope there are similar advances in customizability in future.

Second, I don't care whether the notification bubble things go in the upper right or lower right or anywhere else; I do wish, however, that they were more efficient to manage once they're open.  For that, I favor Argent's proposal to turn all that into an accordion widget.  (I'm not sure how the notification area got mixed up with where one actually reads IMs, which is wherever you last put the IM window.)

Third, I'm not enjoying the chatbar as an undockable floating window.  Maybe I'll eventually find a place to put it where it's not perpetually in the way, but I haven't found it yet.  That's not a huge issue for me because I usually have the chat history open anyway.  Ideally I'd want to recombine nearby chat and IM windows in the same tabbed frame, but I guess I'm in the minority on that because it was a very unpopular feature when introduced in viewer 1.

Finally, I'm pretty impressed with the pace at which new stuff is getting rolled out these days.  It's almost as if somebody competent is managing the place. :smileysurprised:

I dragged mine down to the lower left, in line with the bottom buttons, and pop the chat history open and closed as needed.

As far as going back to Phoenix, that messaging system is at the top also from what I remember.

 

No it's not. All IMs and chats are at the bottom left. Notices are the the top right though, but notices aren't as frequent as IMs, so that doesn't bother me much. Phoenix is still my favorite viewer. Firestorm is horrible though. I'm gonna try Singularity too when I get a spare moment, but I doubt I'll be using any official viewer again anytime soon.

The new update destroyed my performance even more than it already was. I went from 10-30fps, to around 5-13 fps. I switched to dolphin 2 viewer, and got 20-70fps with a 35-40 avg.

I'm far sighted as well and I wear reading glasses when I'm on the computer. Heck they're not even prescription readers, just the $15 type you can get at any store. If you're far sighted your not supposed to get a huge monitor and sit on top of it using big fonts! lol
