I kinda like the new icons.

Am I the only one on earth who wants actual WORDS along with whatever
icons are used?

No! I hate icons.

If there is space, I use text only (as with the TB I am posting from).
If not, I use icons and text under. When icons alone are unavoidable, I
hope that tooltips are available.

When I see a picture I have to translate it into English before I can understand it. I can get used to 'greenblobwithwhitestreakontop' being something I use all the time, but for the rest I have no idea at all what those tiny pictures even ARE, much less mean.

Cheers, Bev
