I noticed that you now show the number of widgets in the showcase categories, and that the category description only appears when you mouse over the category. I don't like the way it gets larger when you mouse over and smaller when you mouse off. I liked it better the old way where the description showed no matter what and it stayed one size.

The problem with the old version was that when we added three new categories, the list became far too long, appearing partially below the fold.

We didn't want to eliminate descriptions altogether but something needed to be done.

The part of the page that's displayed before a user scrolls down.

The last one my computer shows before scrolling down is Shopping.

It differs from computer to computer, you'd probably only get to Fun & Games with the old version.
