Thick arrow buttons stealing space from the board are suspicious to begin with but they add another scroll bar on the right scrolling for 1mm up down.
Additionally, new time control formatting is poetic-like but ultimately it looks better to have two lines, I think.
I looked through the change history, and I don’t think this UI update was intentional. The idea was just to make these buttons more accessible. I passed this feedback along in the PR discussion.
Still looking forward to the day when the chat window isn’t so narrow
