Yes, but... It's easy to make screen shots, and the new GUI is very nice. It works great in a browser.

However, I have found some problems with the new GUI. Here's my initial observation:

- The page needs a bit more padding on the left and right when the window gets narrow. (see the screen shots at http://www.bufferbloat.net/projects/cerowrt/wiki/Setting_up_SQM_for_CeroWrt_310 ) The headers (e.g., "Active Queue Management" and "Queues") feel a bit cramped, and increasing the whitespace on the margin by a few pixels would let it breathe.

- With several pages, making the window narrow (as would happen with a phone) causes the black header to take up twice the space because the menu items wrap to two lines. This is exacerbated by a "Auto Refresh On" button in the menu bar of other pages that takes up valuable space.

- The menu items that drop down (e.g., Network -> SQM) can't always be clicked/tapped in certain phone/tablet devices. In my limited testing, iOS devices seemed to work, Android devices didn't. Sigh.

I wonder how to report them (and to whom?) Thanks.
