Do you Like/Dislike the "back" options in Yosemite

I'm relatively new to Yosemite,(10.10.5 - up from 10.6.8), and I'm still uncovering few new "features" which I'm not that thrilled with.

When surfing around to various sites [using Safari] I'm used to clicking on the "Back" button on the upper left menus bar. - worked fine for me.

Now I've discovered that the new (almost invisible) < > is not always there/active. After some considerable time searching, I discovered the tiny (equally invisible) X in the tab above. So now, in the new improved design I have to determine whether to click < or locate the proper tab and click the X.

If Apple wants to close a tab using a hidden button, fine, but why remove the feature form the menu bar? I find it annoying, especially when the text in the table just numbers & does not clearly define which page it links to, and to top it off the text is very small, and hard for my tired old eyes to read.

Anyway, thats my rant for the day,

Anyone happy withe the change?

Not sure if you know this or not, but in case you don't, click on View in the menu, the on Customize Toolbar and you can drag and drop a lot of options to make the tool bar work the way you prefer. It may help with your issue.

Thanks Don
Yes, I've tried various Custom settings, - found some that help, but the most frustrating at the moment is the very small/thin font used in the safari menu bar.

And the dark gray text on a light gray background - it may be stylish, but it's harder for me to read.

I increased the contrast in the System Pref - Accessibility, it helped a bit, but I found that if you push the "Display Contrast" to the right end - much of the finer text disappears, just washed out.

Anyway, I'll just have to sit closer to the screen i guess, or at least until we can override J. Ives design choices.
