I was quite unhappy to log in today and find that the side panel is "no longer available." I found the side panel invaluable for getting a quick view of a person's facts. Without it, I have to hover over a person, click 'View Profile', and wait for the page to load. I know this doesn't sound like a big deal, and while this isn't for viewing just one person, it makes comparing facts between multiple people a tedious effort.
I'm sure I'll get used to it over time, but it's really frustrating to have a useful feature that you're accustomed to just disappear without warning. Is there any indication from ancestry.com as to why this was removed? Couldn't you have made it optional for users? Is there any hope of getting this back?
