Clueless's editline.cgi page is suffering from a mixture of links and buttons in an increasingly unintuitive and counter-productive manner. I'm not opposed to "buttons", or a change of the layout. The extra features that have been added over the years have been very useful, but it is becoming increasingly difficult to easily find the feature I'm looking for.
I do not think that any buttons are needed at all and are currently serving to muddy the previously clean, efficientl layout. Links are easier to find especially if they are intuitively grouped together. The way the buttons are implemented is also counter-productive - I cannot, for example, middle-click the "Log" link and have it open in a new window, whilst navigating other features.
I'm also sure that the increased use of screen area that the buttons use may hinder users on mobile devices.
