This site has nothing to test.

I may be in the minority, but, I liked the old site better. But, maybe I am resistant to change and if everyone else likes this, that is the way to go. Was there any security concerns that necessitated this change? Or maybe this will make some maintenance easier? Anyway, thanks for the hard work and your support of this forum.

There is some real estate on the left (frame?) that is unused. It gives us information about who is on the site and some other links. When I am reading and responding to posts that is superfluous. So instead of having that panel, can the whole of the main frame be displayed on the browser so that there is more real estate to read and write the posts?

Also, I hate the scroll-bar. A second scroll bar is really unnecessary. Most browsers have scroll bars that can be used to move up and down a page. Now, when I am posting, there is a 3rd scroll bar for the post. I think the second scroll bar should be removed. As always, in a democracy, if others find it useful, it could stay.

Many reasons for the change including some compatibility concerns.

The scroll bar is a Firefox and Opera bug as far as I can tell. IE 7 doesn't seem to have it. So something in the css is broken.

Take your point about the real estate as well. Currently we are working in integrated login but a wrapper mode so the real estate and scroll bar problems. Once the header is a common header this should not happen.
