Use case: Responsive websites.
The new widget is frustrating. We have column widths that change depending on the device and/or browser window size. Sometimes a column might start out at 300px wide, jump to 640 and then go back down to 300 again. The widget appears to magically pick the width based on when it first loads and then never changes.
I really like the new widget, but I can’t use it because it’s just not adaptable to a responsive site where the containers change depending on the context.
To be honest, I think it’s kinda funny that you’re forcing some sort of design/typography restrictions on how folks use your new widget. I think most people just want a widget that will fill a gap. I personally don’t care if the line length is a bit too long or short, I just want it to fill a position and have it adapt to my layout (Disqus comments widget comes to mind… they do a great job of not making any assumptions).
I don’t mean to sound like a jerk… Just I really like your new widget!!! It’s so much nicer looking that the previous one (which, btw, let us change the width to 100%).
Thanks for listening.
