New Admin Area - Clean Design urgently needed
The Admin area looks like it was taken from a script in the 90's: old-fashioned, not visually attractive at all.
I have an admin theme installed from a 3rd party company but the major problem remains: too much stuff going on, too many links, too many information, too many small links / icons which require an urgent cleanup.
The pages could also be loaded / saved using ajax or something similar to speed up the navigation.
There are just unlimited options to optimise the visual look of the admin area, just look at CE (competitor) or other systems like Freshbooks or Xero as two simple examples.
