If its the dot in the 37.73 then that is ok..X days left is a good feature.- move the words usage and month to the middleI agree on that one.

Like the new skin. The colours will take a bit of getting used to, but overall it's definitely a nicer looking gadget. One thing though, the option to click on either bar to get quota per day remaining or deficit/surplus seems to be gone? Do you plan to put this setting back in? Was handy.Edit: Eh, dived into a reply to quickly. Just saw the little box in the bottom left corner, with ALL those extra options, including what I was looking for. This is fantastic, no longer need to log in to monitor daily traffic.
