Winter' 16 is Here : A New, Modern, Intelligent User Experience

Lightning Sep 4, 2015

Yes, Winter' 16 is here and this time salesforce mostly focussed on lauching their new & intelligent UI with Lightning hence making good user experience. It does not support everything right now hence there is an option to go back to Salesforce Classic UI. By going through different objects, you will see that it jumps to classic view automatically for non supportive objects/feature.

UI is cool & easy to use though it will take some time to get used to it. Below are some screenshots for this:
