WordPress 2.0 tabs features overview
You can drag and drop to sort the order of each sidebar item.
This is great! I love all these Ajax features, everything goes so smoothly, everything re-sortable by drag and drop!
So the number 2.0 fits in very well here, it is web2.0 now. – Whatever it means.
So this is for those who are hesitating and want to know what you’ll get when you sign-in, here are the features:

Personaly I often had my browser crashing when uploading files, but here everything worked without ANY problem. Very cool!
If I wasn’t interested in designing my own layout I would definitely choose WordPress!
