Wonderful to see that you are working on this, listening to feedback. :) I love slim, efficient, wokflow-optimized interfaces and I don't think I'm alone. Don't we all want things to be hidden while we dont need it and visible when we want them? You are closing in on the clean contact list some of us love with this Slim Mode. For a simple solution, I'd say make the top and left bar optinally hideable, and voilà... a lot of customers happy. Perhaps a setting that says "Hide all bars automatically in Slim Mode" and when enabled the bars only show when ALT is pressed and released? Other thoughts regarding "immediate access but still hidden until we want it" : Integrate the instant connect function into the search field. If we type an ID that is not in our contact list or recent connections, allow us to instantly connect to it. Integrate the "recent connections" into the search bar instead? When the search bar is selected but empty pushing down arrow on the keyboard (or clicking a small icon only visible inside the search field when it's selected but empty?) we get the recent connections. Might be worth testing to see if it's intuitive.

Wolfram, This isn't rocket science, it's really quite simple; you've taken away the old interface, but you've given us no tools to manage the new one and, as a consequence, I keep having to select the address book tab to get to the ONLY THING I use TeamViewer for (I know I am not alone in this). How about giving us the ability to set a default tab? I can’t imagine that something so simple, something that people are clamouring for is really all that difficult. My workflow: I open a connection in a tab, then go to add another connection, but first I have to select the address book, which just adds to the time it takes to do the job as well as my mounting frustration with your product, not to mention that I have to do this again and again for each connection I want to add. Did you honestly think this was the best way to do this? Do you honestly feel that by adding another step to a user's workflow, an annoying and frustrating step to be sure that seems to have appeared only out of vanity, that you were making your product better? Do you even use your product?
