Two different GUIs, Please Vote / Express your opinion
« on: September 01, 2006, 04:48:57 AM »
Please help me make a decision about which GUI layout I should go for, continue development.

Current GUI:

New One:

I think, the new one is better because I intend to add more toolbars like, HTML toolbar utilities, JavaScript Toolbar, PHP etc etc and if I keep the current one, more and more toolbars will just keep on being added one on top of the other and eventually space may run out. If I proceed with the new one, I can just keep on adding tabs and place each toolbar there. Screen space will be preserved.

I think the less toolbars enabled by default the better, so I vote for the new one.

yep, i agree - i'm finally understanding that the top tab panel replaces the toolbars - so yeah, i like that better than 100 toolbars, definitely.

I agree - less is not necessarily more, but just enough definitely is!

Definitely the new one...and maybe also give users an option to hide tabs they will never have a use for.

Wow So many replies :) Thanks guys!

Now *that's* what I am talking about. Really thank you :)

Everyone's is favoring the new one including me. It provides the same functionality just less clutter. I will proceed with the new one. I intend to make Alpha 6 available by the weekend end with full Java support.

Very true, a c++ programmer won't need to look at a java tab all the time ;)
