Old issues list was more legible
This isn't a new issue. The issues list changed quite a while ago, but I still dislike it.
The old issue tracker was clean, uniform, uncluttered, and easy to scan. I liked the fact that each issue took up the same amount of vertical space and the font was large enough to be readable but small enough to maximize the space in terms of number of listings displayed.
Then everything changed and it's a pain every time I use it. The font is bigger and the issue titles are broken into multiple lines. (Scaling the font size in my browser hasn't helped.) The grey component tags just clutter that space further, making it difficult to read. There are at least six different colors in there. The graphics are not quite conventional enough to be obvious, which makes them more distracting than informative. All in all, there's less information there and it's much harder to scan through it quickly and find what I need.
