It’s taking a while to get used to, but I’m starting to feel the same here. I do really like the topic title being prevalent here, but I’m having some phantom limb pain from being unable to see my notifications. Search and hamburger I rarely open when viewing a topic.

Full height menus will be cool when they hit, but also bear in mind that the swipe in features will also be unavailable on iOS due to swipe-left being reserved for browser forward.
