I find all the mouseover stuff useless at best, and mostly just plain irritating. For example, I would prefer to have the moves visible, not via the mouseover popup. It is interesting to be able to see the move times on the scoresheet.
Having the pgn is useful, if only because the replay feature has animation as a default, and it seems to be "stuck". I've just tried three times to turn off the animation, but was unable to do so. I can't imagine anyone wanting to replay games at a fixed speed, neither speeding thru routine moves nor pausing at interesting positions.
At least with the pgn available, I can cut and paste the moves into Chessbase, so I can replay them at my own speed, on a decent screen.
Also, though this is a matter of preference, I prefer the "tfd" screen that other websites use.
