@sodium - you mentioned that you prefer the grid view.
- Shift-5 gives you a grid view on any feed.
Some other nice keystrokes:
- Right arrow closes the friends panel on your left. (Left arrow brings it back)
- Shift-0 will turn off the "started following you" noise.
- Shift-1 toggles a full screen view of your friends' icons. Might be good for finding a specific person, I guess.
