Just wondering what everyone thought of the new youtube design.

Personally I'm not really a fan because of how bland it is and how busy the main feed is now.
It also only takes up half me screen for some reason.

I normally zoom in on most websites to fill my larger screens anyway, but I zoomed youtube to normal size out of curiosity and it was left aligned with easily twice as much whitespace on the right than actual content, it's crazy. I also miss the "more videos from this channel" feature that was on the top of videos. The actual design is fine I guess, I don't pay much attention to it as I put most videos full screen on my left monitor and then keep doing whatever on my right. I don't spend too much time looking at the site itself.

On the plus side I like the new playlist viewer thing and the subscription viewing page is ever so slightly better.

I don't like the new redesign, but I REALLY hate how they keep changing things. It's making it harder and harder to show my stuff on my channel and harder and harder to see the stuff I want to see. Every time they change something they take things away.


Go play some Quake 2:
It's like Source v0.9, only... better!
Play Paintball for Doom 3!:
Doom 3 Paintball to the Max!

I quite like it. But it yeah I agree with the happy friar it does make it harder to show stuff.

yeah, I just noticed the "More videos from this channel" was gone which is a massive bummer.
I do really like the new playlist because it's all there in one place but i did like having a thing on the side for recommended videos rather than everything in the same pot.
But all this white is really not easy on the eye.

I don't mind the white, although I thought the previous design looked nicer. It's the left-aligned page that looks completely off, the unused gap is painfully apparent.
