nice! the change fits in so seamlessly with the rest of the site that I didn't even notice it at first, haha... this is a good thing btw. I've been jaded by google et.al completely reshuffling their UI every few years for whatever reason, so it's great to see cool new things that fit in well. :D
This is a really nice feeling update. As soon as I saw the bulletin and the drop down triangles, I was actually afraid, but the main links function basically like how they did before the update, and the drop down actually saves a page load if I wanna go somewhere.
i was clicking that "Forum" button over 56 times per day for sure. i never counted it, but it was around once per minute when i was active on the page.
since the update, i clicked on the dead link 6 times already,
if it works better on mobile, thats good. and if most people enjoy the change, thats good as well.
