LEO got a facelift

From http://dict.leo.org:

Das kuschelige LEO-Design ist nun doch etwas in die Jahre gekommen, und die Übersichtlichkeit hat mit den Angebotserweiterungen um Französisch, die Vokabeltrainer und die Foren auch nicht zugenommen. Wir hoffen, dass das neue Design nach den obligaten Eingewöhnungsproblemen eine Verbesserung in jeder Hinsicht bedeutet.

Time for an overhaul of the charming but admittedly slightly staid LEO design. Since last year we have expanded our services to include a French dictionary plus forums as well as a vocabulary trainer for both dictionaries, but we have sorely neglected to address issues such as website usability. We hope the new design constitutes an improvement in all respects once you have got used to it.

Good move, LEO. The site looks a lot better, und ist zweifelsohne ein Muss for everyone who works in English and German. I'll be the first to admit this is one of my most frequently used bookmarks - whenever you just can't find that specific English or German word, wenn es sozusagen auf der Zunge liegt, LEO will give you the answer. Also nichts wie hin.
