    Wow, I get nostalgic seeing that screenshot of the old ui. It really was slick and you make a good point about this new vertical ui, quite strange

    Husky from SC2 just praised it some time ago, and then Valve decide to change it into this new version which looks worse.

    He explained from a competitive gamer's perspective why the old UI was considered good.

    I remember that. Thanks for posting this, I always wanted to send a private message to a game developer to watch this but I figured out someone else would do it anyway. Well, I'm not sure if that already happened, but it seems like you can do it!

    Absolutely agree, wesai. That is why I created a Poll to provide just that : http://dev.dota2.com/showthread.php?t=37892

    Not trying to hijack the thread but - Please chip in your votes guys! Every vote counts!

    The only thing i would like to see is a possibility to minimize that browser. I dont need it all the time.
    Dock-able interface would be nice as well (like in Jira).

    Nice analysis there.

    On a serious note, I preferred the old one too. The new one just need a bit of rearrangement to look nicer.

    I like the colors and some icons design, the rest is pretty much weird. Too much wasted space, instead of picking something to improve, making use of the previous non used spaces in the main page, they instead revamped everything that actually gives us even more dead spaces with an horrible layout (OP is self-explanatory).

    Anyway, when people get out of their way to say this, even though it's not constructive criticism, we need stop and reflect about the topic itself. Something is really wrong.

    Agree wholeheartedly. Invidual widgets/buttons may look better in new dashboard, but layout of old 1 was close to perfect. I had very few issues with it. Looked good and was clean

    Can agree with that some rearranging would be nice, even better if we had the freedom to rearrange the content ourself

    Pros and cons has been discussed already, and I don't really know what else I could add, soima just leave my 1 for the old dashboard comeback.

    Why so many onepost-mayregistration-haters of the new dashboard?
    Without any proper argument, though. Its just "I DONT LIKE IT PLEASE CHANGE IT BACK,VALVEUDUMBIHATEU".
