The Family Bovine : YouTube's new design falls under the same problems. Unnecessary padding in areas where it's not needed, plus the long, full width horizontal lines across the screen. UI Design should be about introducing things people never knew they wanted. This has done the exact opposite.

sparkie1j : I still dont understand making it more mobile friendly when most websites have a mobile version thats different. Why not have both?

Nincadalop : >how to script a youtube video

Mystic Song : That's not even the worst. The new design disabled all CSS functions (which they claim will come back.. SOMEDAY) so now all subreddits look exactly the same. Why even make the goddamn redesign for mobile users, if mobile users have the app (And other 3rd party apps like Reddit Is Fun that are way better)!?

Shrek Is Love Shrek is Life : At least they made it optional COUGH YOUTUBE COUGH

Dust902 : It looks like Facebook.

Jude Aberdeen : Brendaddy betrayed 4chin.

Aesquidic : why does it look like a scuffed instagram

Uncle Squiddz : At least we can use old.reddit

Waldeo : I really do wish that when websites are made "mobile friendly" that they'd just make it a default mode only when a mobile device tries to access it. Also, if you're going to make your website mobile friendly, don't just replicate Twitter's system to near plagiarism. Infinite scrolling is annoying, and you could've just made it a smaller and cleaner version of the web version.

Gone Craizy : I think the problem comes from actually using reddit

DisneyBlackJet : (*Has a moment of silence for all the websites that weren't broken and got "fixed" anyway.*)

Bailey Green : _“The New Brendaniel Design is terrible”_ He was much better when he was reading 4chan texts... Jk, that shit is played out.

Carlo : it is worse than when my dad beat me

Austin Wright : >Reddit >Those Tabs You have to go back.

MacAndPleaseNo : Everyone I know thinks the new design is good. Thank god someone has a functioning brain.

Strel0k : It's actually pretty easy to force YouTube to use the old design by utilizing per-site user agent customization. Here's an example for FireFox: 1. Go to about:config 2. Create a new string variable with name: and value: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:41.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/41.0 3. Save it and bam! Old YouTube.

Lukeskydocker : The new design is annoying .

Thomas Wright : R.I.P Pretty Clean forum style being the default 20**-2018

iquityoutube : It looks the same for me

Gyaku : we did it reddit

Covrig Luca : >Unironically using Leddit.

Modern Fallout Fan : >Reddit >good Choose one

Shitpost Knave : There's a glory hole in the toilet stall

PhaserArray : It looks like it was designed to be mobile friendly, but that shit doesn't even work on mobile or other low width displays!

O W E N : Okay I'll agree that compact and default look awful but tbh, I actually kind if like the classic version of the new style

Knockrotter : My cat was attacked by another cat This is so sad can we get five like

Veloci raptor : Zoinks I'm shaggi

The very Last korok : Still not as bad as YouTube’s layout changes.

RoboTom : *Oh no* The voices were so similar that at first I thought, "omg he totally sounds like Knuckles," but no he just has a deep voice as smooth as butter

Magos Errant Malleator : Both designs are cancer.

Doctormaniac Butts : I do not suffer from this issue at all, reddit's default view is the same as it has always been, and it doesn't even give me the option to switch to any other view.

Squid : I think making a video about Reddit when a good chunk of your subscribers came from 4chan videos wasn't the best idea considering some of these comments.

Cruzi : Yep. Dont care.

Translation Hell : That ReadsYourComments guy is pretty gay

Unilythe : This seems like complaining for the sake of it. That classic layout is functionally the same as the old layout. Why don't you actually say _why_ the classic layout is awful? I'm not a fan of quite some things of the new reddit too, but my complaints are not about the classic layout at all. A lot of shit just doesn't work properly or counterintuitively compared to what we're used to.

Ponko : le gib me le leddit upboat pls

Shmugums Mgee : Wasn't the reason behind Digg's downfall and Reddit's original success due to a terrible design update on Digg's part?

Szymat : People always fight those kind of changes, but A/B testing usually shows that new designs are better (not always) see ebay new design issues - and how they did it. Stop moaning, and adjust, fresh look can be good.

Erick Lujan : I hate it too, Bren-chan.

melloyello : Dude you're 24? You sound like Bruce Wayne.

Max G : redit for Nromie!!! XDDDDDDDD 4cham is eipc

Owen Shaffer : Can I eat your voice

Angry Yogbuscus : Reddit no Reddit stahp

Hieillua : Boohoo. Cry me a river. *Plays a violin* It's the end of the world everyone. A website had a redesign. So terrible how they gave you all the options to revert to the old style and giving you the option to go classic. Boohoo. O my god an ad in my face. If only I could scroll once with a scroll wheel and not look at it. Life is hard. Boohoo. The old design is so clean..... NONSENSE.... It's also a mess. You are just used to it. There's nothing intuitive about it at all and it looks dated. Change happens. Time to grow and live with it. This happens also every time YouTube gets a redesign. I bet all of you crybabies don't even remember how the old YouTube style looks like. :) have a nice day though :)

eerereps : except the comments because... *it's not a good place to be...*

1ppo : That's what you deserve for using leddit.

fapple : the new look looks like 9gag and that's why I hate it.

Frances Helton : Brendaddy its 2:00am please go to sleep your vids are keeping me up and I have finals in 6 hours

Joey Nelson : >using leddit
