Just when I thought Jupiter was getting good, it just took a major step backwards. First, the navigation menu...

This new navigation went from good to completely horrible. Why is the font of the titles exactly the same as a normal navigation item? I can't even tell what the currently active item is because that's been removed.

The top bar...

I'm glad to see that the information is out of the drop down icon, but it seems weird not having everything in the same top bar. Seems like more screen real estate is being consumed to display the same information.

It's hard to believe that major changes like this are still being implemented. I guess that's modern software development... a release date was set, it's releasing ready or not.

Please, at least fix the navigation menu. I can't imagine how anyone who has poor vision and was relying on visual cues is going to use this update. I'll learn to live with the new top bar, but the navigation menu is definitely an accessibility issue.

Edit: Also noticed the search in the menu just got worse. For example, typing "list" is normally how I get to list accounts. In pre-106 would give me:

This new update gives me:

It barely filtered at all! Please... put the old menu back.

Hey there! This is interesting, as a *vast* majority of the earlier feedback was that the bold in the menu against the dark blue was very hard to read. This is the first one where we've heard of someone liking the bold.

I have brought this up with our UI team so they are aware of the desire for separation or distinction of the category headers of some sort.

As far as the filtering, the top-right search will give you more direct results while the left search is more of a catch-all filter.

I just tried the search on the right, that's what we wanted but didn't know it was there. I typed in list and account list came up, clicked and boom I'm where I wanted to be fast.. good!

The left search is more of a "search" while the top one is the more traditional filter for when you know exactly where you want to go.
The left search is labeled "Search Tools" while the right search is labeled "Search Tools and Accounts". I would expect the Search Tools function to work consistently.
With the UI change, the search in the left was removed, and subsequently added back cause it serve a purpose. This version revert this search back to "as good as removed".

106 is even harder to use when the new UI came along. You guys really need to stop trying so hard to reinvent the wheel. Just when we are coming to terms with the new UI, you guys do something to make us hate it again.
