So, what's wrong with metacpan.org?

    what's wrong with metacpan.org?

    Minor quibble: on /recent, (which is the most-used page for me) the line height is too large, so that less entries fit on a page (than is the case on the old website). I do see the advantages of metacpan.org but less lines on a page is still something that is a bit annoying. Perhaps it can be fixed.

        Ctrl-Minus doesn't really improve the comparison: if I do Ctrl-Minus on search.cpan.org as well, it still has more lines.

        Ah well, I guess I don't really care too much -- I'm just Easily Annoyed ;)

    "So, what's wrong with metacpan.org?"

    (speaking for myself) It's not that I hate metacpan; it's that I don't like it.

    It's not that I like search.cpan; it's that I love it.

    Qualification of the above;
    I find metacpan too messy, and busy for my needs, and likes -- it get's in my way, and workflow.

    search.cpan OTOH has exactly what I need, and only what I need.

    That pretty much covers it, for me. :-)
