I find the front page more colourful and not ugly, but messier and with the sections less well defined.

Now I am not a person that prefers the old design just because I got used to it for so long, so I tried to give this redesign a really fair chance, but I am sorry to say that it got worse. I can see many good intentions but the overall look and feel is too complicated and "unclean", so to speak. Too many pictures on the front page and the loading times are terrible.

Substance > Style

Art Direction > Realism

I might like. I don't really know yet.

Can hardly load the pages on my 1000/1000 Mbit/s.

Now it loads faster for me than it ever has. That's a huge upgrade!



It's a mess. Just a terrible UX design.

TBH I might avoid the front page altogether from now on. When they said they were redesigning it, I expected a cleaner version - I mean it wasnt great before - but instead now the front page is FULL of features that are not even necessary to have there, much more so than before. Clear downgrade for me.



I haven't noticed much of a change.  The ads are so obnoxious on this site that it overwhelms any other changes that might be made.  Even as I was reading through this thread over 50% of my screen was taken up by ads.  That is an unreasonable amount of ad space IMO. 

If I listen to a 3 minute song on Youtube, I might have to hear a 5-30 second ad first.  If I were to apply the proportions used by this site, then it would be more like a 4-5 minute ad to hear a 3 minute song.  I understand ads are necessary, but at a certain point it becomes too much.

Pretty much this.  



Notably better



Well, at first I was gonna say is worse than before but I think I just have to get used to the new visuals and stuff, it's a great addition to have the flag of my country now representing on the hardware chart so extra points for that, also I think it takes a little longer to load the page but overall I voted "slightly better".



I know... my English sucks.
