Depending on your browser, the window opened may not be the exact size as the display area. You can change the window size as you like.
For some browsers like Internet Explorer, the address bar cannot be removed unless you specifically set your options to do so. In that case, you will not be able to resize the window to fit in only the display area.
The sound icon on top of the price levels display area is a button. It toggles the sound on arrival of new updates.
Price Level Display
Within the display area, you will find a table of the price levels displayed in decreasing order from top to bottom.
The left side of each line is the name of the price level. Sometimes there are more than one price level landing at the same price. In that case you will see the line showing something like x2 which stands for 2 price levels occupying the same line. When you see x4, it means 4 price levels occupying the same line.
You can find out all the price levels on a particular line by pointing your mouse at the name. A hint will appear next to your cursor with the extra information.
Last Price Marker
An asterisk is placed next to the price level that is closest to the last price.
Price Level Importance
The red coloring next to each line indicates the importance of that price level relative to the other ones on the display. This is calculated from the relative distance of the price levels among each other to figure out the ones that are most influential. The ones with bright red are the more important ones.
