coComment just got more difficult to use

For quite some time I have been happily using coComment. For those who don’t know this service: coComment basically keeps track of the comments you leave on web sites. If you’re like me, reading and commenting on many sites, it can be difficult to track the replies to your comments. coComment captures your comment and tracks the conversations started by those comments on a single page instead of having to revisit all sites you’ve commented on.
Yesterday coComment released a new version, bringing more _social_ features. By doing that, they threw out the real value of their service: tracking conversations. The new page reserves 75% of screen real estate for groups, friends, favourites and neighbours, leaving just enough space for **only five conversations**:
Furthermore, all my conversations have been marked as unread, and I could not find an option to mark them all as read. This is not an upgrade, this is a downgrade!

  1. Thanks for commenting Matt. Yes, I have seen that you have been working on it, and am happy that I can now go directly to my conversations page. If now you could only give me an option to get rid of that button with the two arrows on every page… this disturbs me so much that I actually disable coComments until I decide to comment.
    Update: I was unable to post the message above, while it did get send to the coComment server. For the moment I stop using coComment until these issues have been fixed.

  2. OK, we heard you 🙂 !
    Have a look at the revision we made today. We’ve tried to retain the best of the new interface (cleaner/more functions) with the extensibility and fuller listing of the old.
    Let us know what you think …
