We've been in the process of improving our image viewer experience and we could use your feedback.
- We've adding smoothing effects to image zooming. This removes the previous jumpy behavior at the price of being slightly less responsive. Please let us know if you have any noticeable degredation on your computer/browser combination.
- We've taken steps to improve the image load times, allowing browser caching and direct URL loading when institutes have not required us to dissuade image downloading. Please let us know if your load times have indeed improved or otherwise.
- We have a more concise toolbar at the top, taking less space, a uniform appearance, and mostly just doesn't look like it was pieced together over the years as we added features; no new functionality, just a prettier presentation.
- Yes, we've finally stopped loading our default image of P52. It was adding to the initial page loading time and really served no purpose but to look cool :)
Please let us know your experience. As always, we'd love to hear from you. A link to the old image viewer is here for comparison, if you would like to check the difference: http://ntvmr.uni-muenster.de/web/tagriffitts/old-image-viewer
