They seemed to have updated most of the tools. Even added little smiles so that you can rate the tool. The chtml option flashed me back to my imode days.

No sir... don't like it...
I have to click too many drop downs to get results.
I think a tabbed approach would be more user friendly.

The new Sitemap is funny too,
On some pages I see the bodytext as a mix of 3 languages Russian, German and Dutch.

I haven't paid a lot of attention to the re-inclusion request form before, dispite having to use it a few months ago. Now the form in Site Maps requires you to admit to wrongdoing before it lets you send a request. Isn't this a bit arrogant? Do they really think that they've never dropped a site from their index and it was their fault and not the fault of the webmaster?

I'm looking forward to their making the domain list page aware. When you're on page 3 and look at an entry, then you get sent to page 1 when returning to the list, and have to click your way to page 3 again. It would help a lot if they just added the page numbers as navigational links so you could click yourself back to the relevant page again in one click.

Looks fine to me, all my pages are still given low pagerank so I'm not really to worry about how the tool is, just want to get my pages up to the level they are worthly of, and low or no pr isn't one of them.

Doesn't seem that different to me. It doesn't seem to be downloading new sitemaps (I have a few that I added two weeks ago that still say pending), and it's reporting some 404s as being in the sitemap that haven't been in the sitemap for weeks, for a sitemap that says was last loaded 12 hours ago.
