    Get with the program, GBS, I believe the latest IE is IE10. If not, maybe I should upgrade (but I never use it).
    *LOL* My computer (desktop) is a 9 or 10 year old Dell. It has 256 something or others which I think is tiny in comparison to the new ones but although it sometimes is slow I look at it like the "Rabbit vs Turtle" race. Besides it's like an old friend, which when all is said and done it is...well old anyway.

    Computer ageing is never going to hold you up as much as your internet connection. Grrrrr ...

    It's a big improvement on the old site, well done! I've noticed two issues: 1) castling doesn't seem to work as a conditional move, and 2) If you click through a game that's been played very quickly you sometimes get a weird effect where two pieces suddenly swap places (e.g. two pawns). The position remains accurate though. This may also happen on Analyse board, I can't quite remember exactly where I saw it.

    One thing I'd like to see is 'x games waiting' to update without refreshing or using the little tool at the bottom.

    I think the sorting of games is a step backward, while folder creation and management seems to be reasonable, users should be able to sort a list by clicking the top of any column, not using an unfriendly disclosure arrow.

    Finally, I'd say the icons at the top suffer from the "Microsoft design problem" (i.e., like Office and Windows icons, they're far too detailed for their size, too many colours etc.). See Apple and Nintendo for inspiration about that sort of thing.

    RHP's never had this function, but there's a greasemonkey script for Firefox that provides that information on the old site, and it also works with the new one. I have "x games waiting" in a small status bar corner which updates every 60 seconds whether I'm on the site or not.

    Thanks Kewpie, I'd forgotten about that. Unfortunately I rarely use Firefox and don't want to switch, but I have used that script before and it's very handy. 🙂
