The New Adsense Interface Stinks!

Why did Google go and mess with the Adsense interface? It used to be simple, but this new interface makes everything 10x as complicated to use!

All I want to do is run a report to show me earnings since my last payment. In the old interface, the option is right on the main page, simply pull down the View menu and choose “Since Last Payment”. Try as I might, I can’t find any such report option in the new interface. It’ll let me generate reports for today, yesterday, last week, and this month. No “since last payment” option.

They do show you the amount you have earned since the last payment, but you can’t break down that figure to show what channel is earning what. This is what’s important to me, as I need to see what sites are earning what, and if I need to make any changes.

I realize the new interface is still in Beta, but I hope they go back to the old way.. Simple is best, it’s what Google was built on. Don’t overcomplicate things just for the sake of change!
