I find that it is not useful at all that all my friends are now listed under friends in the left corner. I only need to see friends there who are on-line. Now I have to scroll the list to find them. I use this list when I want to whisper a friend- and when they are not on-line, I cant do that anyway. It does look nice with the pictures- but it takes up a lot of room - and that again makes the list longer. I prefer functionality - and it was much better as it was before.
