Buttons jumping up and down

One of the new features we've implemented in the latest release of CDizz is dynamic movement of the different Candizz buttons according to their relevance.
We've noticed that it's sometimes difficult to identify when a new Cadni becomes available for a CD or even a single track. Now it's somehow much easier.

Now, when I studied interface design, one of the most important principals for buttons is to keep them in place so that the user won't have to chase them and look for them all the time (notice the annoying implementation of the tabs in MsOffice options, for example). Somehow in this case the exact opposite seem to work better.

You can still drag those buttons to change their order if you'd like, it's fun.

CDizz Player is a free multimedia CD player [download here].
