What is irritating is that Evernote hasn't done anything at all on the new interface to make it better. Not even slight changes that should be easy to implement. The user can't adjust the width of the note list, for example. The text size in the note list is unnecessarily large and space-wasting, with an entire additional line dedicated just to when the note was last created or modified. Something simple under view options allowing the user to eliminate the date last modified and change the text size would be good VIew options [ ] Show images [ ] show text [ ] show date last modified Text size? [1 to 20] The Evernote team doesn't seem at all interested to devote a small amount of time to make simple basic incremental improvements in the web app that users are requesting. Why the heck should anyone pay for their Plus or Premium membership when they don't seem to respond to customers other than with generic "please continue commenting" posts? Yes, there is the ability to switch to the classic interface, but on smaller screens the new web interface actually users the space better in some ways; also, switching to the classic interface is a ridiculous hassle, while Evernote has made switching to the new interface a simple button click from the main page.
In one of the other threads, an Evernote employee said that an option was added to go back to the "Old" web interface quickly, without having to go through account settings. That was apparently removed, as I see no way to do it outside of account settings. I think the original version of Evernote web is far more practical for most people, certainly myself. It uses screen real-estate to display tags, notebooks, shortcuts, reminders; notes under a notebook; and the current selected note. If I want to look at one note in isolation, I can open it up in its own window. I do not see the advantage of the new version of Evernote, except perhaps on tiny screens, but even there, for a smart-phone, you'd want to use the Evernote App. I hope that work on the old Evernote interface has not been completely abandoned and that it will continue to be improved for bugs, features, etc. You can also work on small changes to it to free up more screen space (e.g., maybe option to remove scroll bars from column panes, as most of use just use the scroll wheel for this).
