Very Poor Usability with TortoiseMerge 1.9.0 Ribbon

TortoiseMerge 1.9.0 changed the layout of the ribbon bar to add a "Blocks" submenu, and moved the "View" submenu to a new tab.  This is resulted in horrible usability and very poor ergonomics.
The Blocks menu is almost entirely unneeded as the options are very quickly and easily accessed by using a right mouse-click.  The View menu, on the other hand, is frequently needed to flip the left and right panes, turn toggle comparison options, etc., in conjunction with the editing menu options (moving to the next/previous difference, etc). By putting the View options on a separate tab, this results in constantly having to click back and forth between the view tab and main tab to move to the next difference, etc.
PLEASE PLEASE put the ribbon menus back the way they were in v1.8.x.  If you must include the Blocks menu, then allow that menu to be collapsed or put it on it's own tab, and move the View menu items back to the Main tab. It is critical that the View and Edit options be visible at the same time.
Thanks for listening.
