I always appreciated "GPO Gate", but have learned to REALLY appreciate it after a few months of trying to get FR information from other sources. Every other access method I've tried is harder to use and takes longer. What have other "GPO Gate Groupies" found to replace our dearly departed service from UCal?

So what don't you like about this site?

1. A scroll is required to get to the Submit button.
2. There's no "search within a CFR Part" option.
3. "Search Terms" input field requires quotes for phrases.
4. Search results are formatted so they're hard to scan.
5. "Table of Contents" option only allows current date without accessing a second page (compared with most recent 5 days for GPO Gate).

None of these shortcomings makes me want to go back to daily paper booklets in the mail, but they add up to a site that's less user-friendly and more time-consuming than GPO Gate.
