It’s overall a bit taller for most devices, though if you have a short screen it’ll collapse to be the same height as the existing bar. The bar will also collapse to a hamburger type menu when the window is narrow (like you’re on a mobile device for instance).
You can opt in to this experiment by flipping the “Enable experimental interface changes” toggle under Settings → General Preferences
For those that enable this, let us know what you think!
I prefer the new nav bar
Either nav bar is fine
I prefer the old nav bar
I don’t like either (and will provide some ideas for improvement down below!)
I voted for the new nav bar, I think it’s much cleaner and seeing the search directly is a BIG plus. However I hate all the dynamic sub-menus, especially the tournament list as already mentioned by jlt.
Good idea but I prefer the old nav bar. I can’t find anything more to say. Maybe it is better for mobile devices, not using via phone. Still even there is no option to change, no one would quit the server. Not that kind of change. But I like OGS community becuse of this, it is always developing and has a forum that is asking thoughts of the users. Sorry to discover this place late. I also would like to see the ratings that has been gained and lost attached to each game in the game list on the profile. Just like lichess has. These are all I am going to say when I have a chance to contact the coder boss of the website. I still wouldn’t discourage you by saying it is too bad. I liked it but prefer old nav bar. Thanks for everything.
I’m not against new menu.
My usage is a little worse with it, though.
Tournaments and groups take too much space. Maybe they could be collapsed.
Lines wrapping make it even bigger.
Also line spacing is too big.
And it’s harder to find the link for the forum!
I like Gia’s proposal of sticky customizable items: forum on top would be my choice.
