Hi! You can read more about the redesign here: http://www.duolingo.com/comment/1538409

"One thing I’m sure some of you will miss is the vocabulary page. After a lot of testing, we found that in its current form it wasn’t helping you learn a language faster or stick with the language you are learning longer. Instead, it complicated our system by adding another layer of information that wasn’t well integrated. We went one layer up and instead of "word strength" you’ll now see "skill strength" in a lot of places.

That being said, I can guarantee you that in our efforts to bring all of you the best learning experience, we haven’t seen the last of the vocabulary page. We still believe that learning a language largely depends on having a huge vocabulary, and once we come up with a good way to integrate it across all platforms it will come back."

Could you make the bubbles/boxes/etc smaller? I'm using firefox in windows 7 (screen res 1280x800), and when the correct solutions appear I always have to scroll down to see them (especially when there are multiple ones). I love having multiple correct solutions listed, but ideally everything would fit within the window.

They are most likely working on that! Remember, this is new, and of course there are going to be some problems or things they haven't added yet. You can still strengthen skills! Look at the pros of this layout before the cons.
