Looks like more than just the front page, although many of the other changes appear to be font changes.

I was on the page earlier this afternoon and the changes hadn't taken effect then, so this is pretty new.

So far I like the changes I see. The send to GPS was not working but they have that fixed. The driving directions are pretty cool for those that do not have routing abilities or for those that want a paper map.

Most changes are nice. I don't like that trackables are now at the bottom of your log list vs on the right. And they intentionally removed, for some reason, the find/hide count for friends. Oh well. It's a very nice clean look.

I think it's ugly, but I sense from the forums that I am in the minority.

Most pages are too wide for my usual browser. If I make my browser full screen, the pages get wider too, and are still wider than the screen. It is especially bad on any page listing caches (found, hidden, nearest, etc.). On those pages, the left edge of the list of caches is lined up with the right edge of the "next" in list of next 10 pages. GC doesn't support my browser, though (last of the Mozillas).

Teeny tiny type, acres of whitespace. Looks like letterspacing in waypoints (the GC number). People who letterspace w o u l d s h o o t p u p p i e s. Oh, and if I zoom in on the type (say, 120%), a cache page is unreadable.

I don't mind the color scheme.

Google Geocaching map defaults to the terrain map. Yuk.

Two Minnesota stories featured on the home page today - one on the State Parks and one on Duluth's FinnFest caches.

Looks to be using 1.5 line-spacing... Crying or Very sad

One can no longer do a search by zip code from the main page. Additionally, and more importantly, the search by zip code on the hide and seek page didn't work for me.

I didn't notice that you could enter a zip code into the search box on the main page. I was looking for a separate box like there used to be. Tried it again both there and on the hide and seek page and it worked. Don't know what happened before.

I can't get into the Groundspeak forums - it says I need to log in, and then just goes to an error page. Am I the only one with this problem?

Since the changeover I can't print anything off the site (displays fine but then the printout cuts off 2 inches off the left margin, including the coordinates.

Any ideas?
