When you think about it, what's viewing your friends list good for, seeing who's on or whatever. Like what purpose does it serve
I found it very useful to quickly send a PM to a friend. I could just click on them and it brought me directly to their profile page. Try that with the game client... it is a lesson in frustration. You can't scan down without it clicking out on you.
I also see that the whole friends list on your home page has a glitch too. I tried to clean up a few friends that I never play with anymore to make the list shorter on game client and while the game says that you have removed a person from the fiends, it doesn't actually do it. When you go back to your profile page they are still there.
Just another thing to show WGT is not supporting Flash already.... never mind waiting until December.
