Oh HELL no.

Once AGAIN the goddamned unannounced new interface DOES NOT FIT ON AN 800x600 SCREEN.

Dear LJ: no seriously, fuck you.

no love,
would-be ex-permanent account-holder not because of this interface but because you NEVER, NEVER LEARN.

Well yes. I admit Netscape 8.1 is rather obscure...

I'm told they're aware of the issue and are working on it, so my lividity decreases. It's just like you said, the frustration of the unannouncedness. Combined with the fact that there's almost always some very basic thing that it seems like they haven't solved before rolling it out.

Wow, their new ideas are always bizarre and I really don't like new features just 'sprung' on us. At least now it is no longer spontaneously logging me off every few hours!

Thanks for the warning on this.

Yes! That's it, it was a warning. Public service!

I like that much more than "venting of semi-murderous, semi-tearful rage."

it wasn't just me, then?

Yay! I notice an LJ FUBAR on time for once. Just posted and was all WTF??? "Fit, $%#@! and where's my 'change icon' option... wait.. what's with not being able to change back to the old interface???" and I am using IE!!

...did any of that make sense? sigh.

Yeah, the 800x600 thing wasn't browser-related at all, it seems. Just a cross-platform fuckup. Which they've since fixed. There's still a bunch of other issues they're working on though. :-\

I mean how hard is it to test the very basic "Does this fit on the screen?" question before going live?
