New Blogger Interface

Blogger has been floating a new user-interface. And I give it a thumbs-down.

There is a serious flaw in the procedure for adding pics to the blogposts: if you do so using a pic on a URL, it does not work. And I just don't like that wishy-washy look. Furthermore, I often write blogposts with several open windows, in order to copy or transcribe information from one window to another. The blogpost in the new interface does not properly wrap; what you type tends to disappear under the sidebar to the right.

Anyone else got any thoughts on this? You can access the new look by clicking on "Try new interface" from the Dashboard (www.blogger.com) after logging in.

  3. I haven't seen the new interface as far as it affects blogs, but I don't like the way my Google Reader looks. It is white and washed out, not attractive at all.

  5. I had a serious problem with this new interface.I clicked on try new interface and all it would tell me is that as I use Internet Explorer 9 on this computer there was an error and it would not let me go back. Fortunately on my laptop I only have IE8 so was able to revert to the original using that and it has transfered back on my desk top as well, so I think a very big BEWARE sign should be added to the invite to try
