I think I did mention different styles/skins above, but it seems only different incarnations of the lounge got noticed...

There was also the option to view in flat ( :flatcat: ) or threaded(?) ( :threadhead: ) mode, which, IIRC, in effect gave you an expanded view of a thread in a separate column. But I may be wildly off the mark.
