WordPress developers are adding their preferred feeds to WordPress Admin Dashboard (from WordPress 1.5 onwards), which significantly slows up loading the Admin Dashboard.
Additionally few essential information has been removed frfom the official version of admin dashboard and also some information moved to hard-to-get locations in order to accomodate their copious feed data. This drop-in replacement provides you with a lean and mean WordPress Admin Dashboard, lots of essential goodies without the fluff and super-fast.
This is version 3 of the popular WordPress 1.5 Admin DashBoard Hack.
This version looks nicer and incorporated some ideas from official WordPress 2.0 Admin Dashboard. It has been designed for improved usability. If you liked previous version, you are going to love it even more.
In essence you are replacing the original version of the Admin Dashboard with the new version.
