It looks quite good to me.

My main issue with CS2 is how greedy it is in horizontal space, mostly
due to the waste of space in the "Related changes" panel. If there are
related changes, the owner/reviewer/voting panel is cramped in the
middle, while "related changes" has a lot of empty space on the right.
Is there a way to turn that panel off (move it to a dropdown like the
patchsets view), or make it use half the width, or push it under
ChangeID, or...

I also find the CS2 vote results area a lot less clear than the table we
had in CS, but that may be because I'm used to it now.
