Still not convinced. I prefer the orange than the red. But, actually, I
don't really see how this design is any better than the old one. Not
that I really like the old one, but I don't see what the new design
really offers to justify the change. Smaller font? never saw someone
complaining about it.

No problem with that.

No, I don't think so.
