- Persistent, modular navigation system that can be customized (you can move modules between the top and side)
- Navigation remains while the inner content area changes ("single-app"). The big advantage of this is we can have chat windows and other interactive, real-time content that runs and doesn't get wiped when you navigate to another page.
- New, more modern aesthetic, while maintaining the pixel icons.
- Several new technologies such as: SVG, flexbox, custom HTML elements.
I know this may come as a shock to you, but please give it time, and in a few days I think you will like it. The new design should be more convenient and more fun to use, especially when the full power of the navigation system can be leveraged in a few weeks (custom user-created navigation modules).
A few things will not be working properly or at all:
- Profile templates
