Did it help? If yes - maybe you can help me?

Thanks to enormous work done by Łukasz ‘metys' Lewandowski, page is no longer “desiged by depesz" (which is a code for “ugly as hell"), but is nice, and good looking.

If you like it, please do send some thank you note to Łukasz – he blogs in Polish, but he reads and understands English too.

Change is not only skin deep. The whole site has been rewritten, and uses now Mojolicious web framework instead of Catalyst.

This change should be a welcome surprise to anyone willing to setup their own copy of the site for top-secret plans from their company – mostly because number of dependencies dropped significantly.

All in all – have fun, and thanks for using the site.

    To be precise, the tagline should be changed to

    “A tool for finding a real cause for slow queries in PostgreSQL.”

    I mean, it does not work (yet) for MySQL/Oracle/other EXPLAIN plans.

    anyway, good job Lukasz 🙂 and greets to you both.

    It’s realy strange! 😐

    I use Chrome as primary browser and never had problems with new “explain”. Yesterday, I udgrade my Chrome to 10.0.648.134 (google-chrome-stable) and all works well. Today, I test “explain” on several Chrome instances (including: win/linux OS, stable/developement releases, versions: 8.0.553.224 – 10.0.748.134), evgerything works fine!

    By the way, I test “explain” on several versions of IE/Opera and WebKit on my smartphone – nothing (means, everything works as supposed)…

    Hmm… 😐

    Chrome 10.0.648.134 (Fedora 14) dokładniej:


    Stara wersja działa bez problemu.

    Chrome 9.0.597.98 @Linux x32 (Ubuntu 10.10) – nowa wersja nie dziala, stara ok.

    Przez chwilke myslalem, ze cos zle robie ze nie dziala.

    Moze by warto bylo dodac link do starej wersji serwisu i monitorowac ile zapytan idzie do nowej / starej wersji?

    link jest w komentarzach. umieszczanie go na nie ma sensu skoro to uwala przeglądarkę.
