Hey, this is just something I noticed, it's not a major bug, just something I thought I'd mention. On the left side where it says "Current session has lasted x" it doesn't have an accurate time (it says 7 minutes and I've been browsing the new site design/had it open in the background for at least an hour or so). If it helps I am running Mozilla 1.3b. Anyways, other than that minor thing I like the new design.
After 5 minutes of no activity your session is restarted from 0, so if you leave the window open and do nothing for 60 minutes, when you come back and load a page it will be back at 0, not at 60. Sessions only build up if you're actually using the site and browsing, once you stop loading pages there is no way for any scripts to receive any data from you, and your 'session' dies.
Personal belief is often a poor substitute for the truth.
