Subject RE: Navigation concept
Date Wed, 22 Aug 2012 18:48:23 GMT
Hi Sonny,

Nice concept, I'm looking forward to some awesome UI changes.

I've a suggestion for you, to implement url routers that tracks url history, like we see on
twitter/facebook.
For example, checkout backbonejs's url router:

http://backbonejs.org/#Router

Regards,
Rohit

Thanks Chip. Will be proposing more ideas for the dashboard, notification, and general ui
fixes in the coming weeks.

Thanks You and Best Regards,

Please do keep proposing ideas though Sonny!  Obviously design is always iterative, and feedback's
how to get to the best result...
(I'm sure I'm preaching to the choir here, but I wanted to say thanks
anyway)

as most people seem to miss the counter.
