Reviewing

It took me a while to get used to the new version. I felt the new version was a mess, confusing and quite much a mistake.
I still miss the old version occasionally, however now I am accustomed to this current version and well versed in using this. I dislike the junks ad block which don't really advertise anything at least not in my region where I view it.
Other than this I am quite comfortable with the new version
