I use these text-based graphs.
However, I have some more suggestion for this feature.
Let's take a look at the current situation:
• Tray Icons menu now looks too overloaded. It should be simplified and structured.
• It is barely believable that someone has enabled more than 4-5 icons. Furthermore, if the user has enabled the history graph, it is unlikely to enable the usage graph and vice versa.
• Both history graphs and text graphs have their own pros and cons. It is better to combine their positive aspects.
So, here is my idea how to put a fine point on it:
In this case, the user will have 5 (!) alternatives for each kind of displayed information that is more than enough to please everyone. To make the overlapping text readable the background can be drawn at half brightness.
What do you think?
