The story of Curves in Photoshop
They really messed up a lot of what made the old Photoshop Curves interface excellent.
Someone (some newbie who should have never got the job at all like O'Neill Hughes) decided that Curves were far too advanced a tool for most people. So they tried to dumb it down as much as possible. Unfortunately this screwed with things for the serious user.
The old modal Curves dialog was generally speaking better, easily manipulable and easy to drag around. You'd Command click to add points, switch channels with 1, 2 and 3, and toggle between the points using Control tab with your left hand. With your right, you'd use the arrow keys to nudge the points. A few simple and very intuitive shortcuts and you were there, with a much more fluid and flexible way of working than is easily available to most users now.
Now you have to install a script to get the modal dialog to pop up at all, and some of the shortcuts are changed completely into stupid places.
They even introduced standard "auto-curves", taking all the creativity and judgment out of it. Luckily those of us that learned the skills properly back in the day ... blah blah blah
