That's what I like about the 90's, it looks really awesome.

The pulldown menu to change the version needs some getting used to, but
it's worthwhile.  I just have a style nit:

The (by default) rightmost field, "Size", is so much to the right that
the rightmost characters collide with the Window frame.  Looks like only
the "Size" field is affected by way of being right-justified.  Would
it perhaps make sense to append just a single space at the end of the
field (including the header) so the spacing looks more relaxed?

Thanks a lot for this change.  I'm pretty sure especially visually
impaired users will be most happy with this change.
