I will add my comments to those who have registered just to voice their disapproval of the new format.
Dilbert is funny without the bells and whistles, and the bells and whistles take more time to download, I don't intend to use any of them ever. I hope that this 'Beta' will fail your User-testing, and you will revert to a more usable format.
I thought the comic today was sadly funny, it's quite a bit like where I've worked.
Can you /please/ stop using Flash. Flash on websites, other than for small videos, is utterly hideous. It consumes unnecessary bandwidth, slows down sites, and is not compatible with all browsers or operating systems.
Believe me when I say this; any good guide to writing homepages will tell you the same. Flash was cool about ten years ago, but today it's the kipper tie of webdesign, and your designers either have no dress sense, or are perpetrating a huge practical joke on you. Did you check if Wally is on the team?
Oh, and as for the invisible arrow to scroll the Sunday strip - puhleeze. Whats wrong with just showing us the dang cartoon already? The new site bears too many hallmarks of the PHB.
Dilbert strips haven't been funny in a long time, don't know why, but they've kind of lost it.
Want to read something that actually is funny in the way that Dilbert used to be? Then go to XKCD, just maybe not today though, since today's strip ironically isn't too great either.
