Yes, it's going to take some getting used to. However, the HUGE benefit
of the new Export functionality is that you will not have to repeatedly
specify/confirm the settings of the file format you wish to save to.
In the old version hitting "Save" was very general-purpose. As a result
you would have to confirm two or sometimes three (Are you sure you want
to overwrite that file?) dialog windows to save a file.
For someone like a web developer/designer, especially working through
iterations on one design project, the new approach is a big time-saver.
Now if only the Save for Web dialog would remember the destination
folder from save to save....
