Hmm... overview is lost on the new site. My 15" notebook does not even
display 3 full recipes in a firefox browser window ( with some tabs
being opened ). I didn't check out the site on my 12" notebook but I
suspect it tends to be close to 1. Otherwise the whole screen is
filled with administrative debris which is a pitty.
The dialogs seem to be pretty responsive and straightforward though. I
used "submit recipe", typed my login data and got the input form
immediately - instead of the main page (!) in the old system which was
gruesome in this respect.
