The new arrow looks ugly
Especially in the Firefox Todoist addon.

I set the todoist page scaled up in Chrome by default in my macbook air, whose screen is small.
And I can see the right arrow bitmap has several grey pixels left on the edge of its white background. It does not look good.

I like the new changes, maybe the arrow could be smaller and lighter. Thanks for open the discussion Justin!

I like the new changes too. Especially the small color labels next to projects are made well. The new help page which uses monochrome icons looks also much better then before.

I like the new design except the big arrows V & >.
thank you for your input on our new design. We appreciate it and will try to change it according to your feedback.
Are you referring to all the gray pixels around the arrow visible here:
This is intended in order to make the arrow "smoother" (under normal non-scaled circumstances). If you see other grey pixels around it, please make a screenshot.
In order to clarify what arrow would you prefer to see, here are some alternatives:

I didn't mean the grey pixels around the arrow.
I mean the grey pixels at the edge of the square GIF image files.
Please see attached screenshot:
Chrome with 1 level scale
* the pixels in the arrow & printer image
IE8 with 2 level scale
* the pixels above the check box
Firefox does not have this issue.
unfortunately, we were not able to fix this issue so far :(
It seems to be primarily browser-related.
As a workaround, you could try to lower your screens resolution, which would slightly enlarge any text/data on your computer (even without zooming pages using the browser).
Sorry for the inconvenience.

So bummed to open todoist today. The color tiles next to my lists were one of the things that drew me to todoist and made it feel more personalized than remember the milk. The smaller tiles really disrupt the visual organization for me.
Couldn't this be rolled out the way google did with the new google docs layout - with the option to keep the classic format?
