New forum features: Shorter name for tabs and new Tweet Post button

1) I just noticed that in my firefox tabs I can now see the first part of the name of the category, board or topic.

Before each was prefixed by "HP Communities -" so you couldn't see it with lots of short tabs.

 

2) I also noticed a new Tweet Post button on each topic.

I suppose this is documented in the new FAQ here:

What's new with Twitter?

 

I'm not sure how good it is to add a new feature and not announce it.  ;-)

>the All-Topics listings have _shorter_ identical HTML titles.

 

Hmm.  I rarely use those pages and when I do, only one at a time.

(You have browser bookmarks for these?  Or something like firefox's Open ALL in tabs?)

 

I assume the previous version had the whole path and the new one has just the basename?

And you want it to go to the end if that isn't unique, go up one more?

>so any improvement is slightly startling.

 

Yes, I was surprised.  ;-)

 

(As long as they don't use a sha1 hash to make sure it is unique and fits.  ;-)
