On the plus side, its a lot faster than previous years, and I didn't have to queue up for several hours trying to submit it by the deadline. 

I had the same issues you reported, the worst being the one about not being able to launch PDF within IE (unable to write to cache or something). 

A lot of the instructions are more ambiguous this year. I don't think they tested it very well.  Beats the paper system by a mile though.

What was amusing was a couple of days later they interviewed HMRC on BBC Radio 4 Today program and HMRC boasted they'd done a lot of thorough testing - thanks heavens for that then - what would it have been like without testing? Since when did this not include end-to-end testing viewing / saving / printing the final submission?
