With IPB4 you've removed the function to add a comment on the status feed, however what doesn't make sense to me is that 1.) It's been removed 2.) Since that function has been removed.. What exactly is the point of seeing everyone's recent status updates as wouldn't it be better to only see status updates of people with whom you follow, since the friends list has been also changed to more twitter ish follower feed? - Also yes I understand the point of widgets & add ons that could help implement these things, but as current stock functions they don't integrate that well with each other as a seamless experience
it's too safe in my opinion. I liked the look in the earlier stages much more.. with the navbar at the top of the header, more white and less blue, etc. Seems they are trying to emulate the look of IPS3 too much instead of going for something totally new aesthetically.
