do not like the new site. Pain to navigate, moving images. I can understand if it was a toy store, but it’s not. It’s a tech news site- Techs like direct/blunt, in order/sorted, at a glance. This just doesn’t flow. Yeah change is inevitable, just hope the next one is easier on the eyes. Glad there is effort though, and the stories didn’t change style.
I’ve voted against the moving images, too – not that I don’t like the idea…but they keep weirding me out 🙂
Articles have the same authors, same flavours, same styles, just as you say. I think a lot of people (me included) find the new article layout. The old one was a bit cramped, and for technical articles, diagrams were very limited in resolution, which was a pain for the author.
