Links in the "new editing experience" are a major step back Edited

Below are two screenshots. In the example, I wanted to link to a space directly which happens to have the same name as a page.  

First, the old editor and linking. It was easy, I typed [ and got a useful dialog.  even if there was ambiguity, I could hover over the link and see the URL in my browser status bar.

Second, the new experience.  I don't even know what to say.  On top of what you see below, I cannot hover and see the URL in the status bar.  I mean, just, wtf?

And why did we change the shortcut?  So now the system is fragmented. I can still type // to get a date or @ to tag someone, but now I have to use CTRL+K to link?

In summary, old: good, new: bad.



The new editing experience is so broken that it's a good reason to try to find a new wiki provider.
