 What problem does this address?
 A new user might not understand the difference between uploading a theme
 and browsing the theme repository. To make it easier for new users to use
 WordPress, user actions should be clearer.

 What is your proposed solution?

 The Add New isn't descriptive of the action the user should it. The text
 on the button should be changed to "Browse WordPress Themes".
 Manage Themes should be changed to My Themes to indicate to the user these
 are the themes they have installed on their website.
 A button should be added that allows the user to upload a theme. It should
 say "Upload Theme".
 The button that says "Add New Theme" should be changed to "Browse
 WordPress Themes" so the user understands the button is not for uploading
 WordPress themes but to browse themes.
