1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Cheers,

    No, really what were they thinking? Its not UI intuitive, nor is it visually pleasing. :brick:

    Yeah, I hate it

    I have had it on my home computers for a few weeks but it hasn't hit my work computers yet. I'm still pissed that they pulled reader off of the ugly BLACK bar and made me click into a drop down...but now when I am at home, I have to go into the drop down menu, and then pop open a second menu to get to reader.

    What a fucking joke.

    Google is not the company it used to be.

    That usually happens when you become a behemoth.

    Also, I don't like the look of the black bar either, however, I'd rather have it than the terrible pull down menu.

    i thought google was about simplicity... it's all about easy or simple access...

    i want to access gmail, calendar, news, etc. in 1 click not pull down then other shit.

    I'm not seeing any pull down things on my Google homepage, just the usual black menu bar.

    I think they got rid of it rather quickly, since I no longer get it either. :)
