    New Bottom Toolbar: Let Us Know What You Think

    If you're here, you've probably noticed the new toolbar popping up at the bottom of the site.

    Features:
    - Easily share posts and articles you like via Twitter, Facebook, Digg, email and other services
    - View the NYCAviation Flickr pool (almost 2500 photos in there already, and we've barely even talked about it!)
    - Watch the NYCAviationTV YouTube channel
    - Search the entire site, forums, articles and all
    - If you hate it, just click the down arrow at the far right of the toolbar

    So let us know what you think here in this thread. If it crashes your browser or slows you down, please post below. And if you like it or have ideas for how it could be better, post those ideas here, also.

    Thanks for your input!

    More serious upgrades coming soon, which we will post about in the next couple days. :)

    Too early to comment... It looks really nice tho :borat:
    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".

    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    I don't see a difference...but I also probably didn't notice what the bottom of the screen looked like prior. So I guess its fine.

    I think its great.

    I was using someone else's computer with IE7 and XP and the bar kept crashing the browser but that is to be expected with an old obsolete browser.

    I've used the bar with Opera 10.53 + Windows 7 and Firefox 3.5.9 + OS 10.6.2 and both have worked flawlessly with the bar.

    I really like how it integrates tiwtter, facebook, youtube and flickr with all the Nycaviation stuff.

    For some it might be useful, but not for me. I could care less about facebook, twitter, etc.

    Ah I see it now...it was blocked at work. Don't like it at all, it comes across very cheap and intrusive.

    I dont find in intrusive as of yet.
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    I dont like it. It takes longer for the forum to load now with the bar. Not to mention it is in the way.
