Default eBay's Redesign

What do you guy's think? They are using Bootstrap (a CSS framework developed by the Twitter folks) now, the same design framework I use for all of my design/development work, which at least means that they are standardized, responsive and fit on tablets/phones better.

I'd expect a few kinks in this though. So far it looks great in Chrome and FF - I refuse to open IE on my machines, so I have no idea how it works there. Bootstrap is supposed to degrade gracefully for crappy browsers such as IE 7 & 8, but I bet there's some things that won't display well.

Has this affected anyone's card selling/buying yet?

It is sort of difficult, every time to get to the completed listings. Before you just find the button on the left side, and now, you have to click aound to even find it, then check the box and whatever... Too much more work each and every time.

Its actually much easier than that. When the results show up, look under the search bar, there are 2 links there, one of them says "Completed Listings". All you do is click that and it takes you right to the completed listings without doing the 4 clicks.

I'm running an out-of-date Mac (10.5.8) and have noticed a few bugs with buttons and text. Nothing major that couldn't be handled with a reboot and definitely not enough to detract from the overall pleasantly clean feel. I really should update this compy, though...

The redesign is fine and fits in with their strategy to move even further away from the "mom and pop" operation they had when they launched, but deprecating wildcard searches is terrible. They claim their new search engine will find variations in spellings, but it won't work as well as wildcard searches did (and it means more work for me with my stuff that uses their API w/ wildcards).

I actually love it. I rebooted yesterday and since I did that it reverted back to the old format?? Anyone know why this happened and how to get the new format again?

Because your browser pulls from its cache first until the page date is set to expire. The page expired but the browser cache didn't update. Clear your cache, or hold down control and hit F5 when you visit the page. This keyboard short cut is a command that forcefully asks the server for the current copy of the page regardless of what the browser has in its cache AND updates the cached copy. This command works in IE, Firefox, Opera and Chrome. I don't use Safari, so I am not sure whether or not it works there.

yeah I don't like the semantic search engine either. It just doesn't work as well as wildcards. I was looking for 2008 Upper Deck yesterday, and it found nothing. So I tried 2008 Upper Deck Gold... and it found several matches. Logic says it should have at least found the same amount with the first search, since its a subset of the second. *sigh*
