I know, but the problem in one is often seen in the other.

In my experience it is most often problem with default styles - unless it is a bug.

I know what I don't like - after posting I am sent back to the thread list of the current forum, not to the thread itself. That was the moment when I spotted many typos and mistakes in my posts :)

Spellchecker - sometimes - does strange things. But I can't say when, in case of longer posts it sometimes replaces not the whole incorrectly written word, but its part, leaving additional letters (first and last or something like that) as additional characters surrounding the word.

But I can't say when does it happens - although I have seen it at least twice.

Mitch (or David) - please change 'tweeking' to ' tweaking' in the news box :)

What about enlarging Chemical Forums image? Maybe you can reduce the size of the user info box... ;D

Nice new layout. However, do you have magnifying glasses as well?
My screen-resolution is 1400x1000 and everything is really tough to read.

My avatar now looks ugly. It's width is larger than its height. Now it is scaled vertically and it looks really ugly  :(. What can I do about that?

All together, however, I like the new layout. The letter type is more pleasant and it is somewhat more accessible. If the avatar issue is resolved, then I see it as an improvement.

the new interface is ugly.

the mini-calendar is out of place.

I prefer the recent post box and the recent topics box displayed as a page.

the google search bar is out of place.

i don't think there is a need to display user-info at all.

The user info has always been displayed at the top. I'll remove the calendar block, but I thought it looked cool. What do you mean you want the recent post and recent topic block on the same page?
