The look of this new software for PM is hideous...on a desktop computer at least.

It's just too spread out, WAY too much white on a page, difficult to distinct between bold versus not....

(And my avatar picture is blurry as heck!)
That's because they took our old small avatars and resized them to fit the new location. So your old, low res photo got stretched by about 50%. Best bet is to re-upload the same photo, it'll improve the quality.

Ah, no, there's more to it as to layout.

Try optioning a browser to not even load any graphics.

The"avatar' is either a solid-color-fill with large first letter of login-handle for those who have NOT uploaded an avatar, ELSE, a pale rim empty disk for those who have done.

Same layout. About HALF as space-efficient as the old one was?
