    I think it's improved in a lot of ways, especially some of the bugs/lagging as and that it now holds your place in the news feed. Why did it not do that before, was that hard to program? What a pain that was scrolling back down to find your place every time it refreshed.

    I still hate how ungodly slow it is and the limited functionality.

    Also, has anyone noticed that when you're scrolling through the news feed and you stop close to the edge of an entry it automatically jumps up or down to keep the whole entry in the screen, where it used to let you stop anywhere? I hate this, so annoying.

    I accidentally had clicked "resolved", which is inapplicable to this thread.

    Also, what is the driving force behind the order of the friends list?

    That does not occur on my phone. I wonder if it's a setting of some sort.

    Does it still auto-play videos? If so, it'll remain uninstalled on my iOS devices.

    Yes! That is also extremely annoying! What is their reason for that??

    Because they don't car what we want or think. You can disable it on the laptop/desktop, but not on mobile. The best you can do is scroll past it and then it won't play.

    Perhaps they are getting a kick-back from the carriers for overage charges. :D
