WTF??!?

I do have to get used to it too. Let's give it a chance for some time first...

Philipp, I think there's still a little bug in it: the blog link links to the forum in stead of the frontpage which imo it should be...

I figured the best way to get feedback was to just release it :)
It's definitely in a test period right now.

I suppose the headlines are new or were I just to lame never having looked at it. Based on RSS? Which streams are you aggregating?

David, I already fixed the bug Art mentioned...

Art, the headlines are alled – the link used to read "Google's Blogs." I'm polling the Atom/ RSS of those official blogs every 5 minutes...

It's something between design for three-year-olds and a porn site design ;>

I think you should change the colors, make this line on the right thinner, and set the site width to 100%.

Philipp Lenssen [PersonRank 10]

The design was inspired by this ad I saw:

I dont know why.. but I feel like I have been taken back in time – like a web0.1 type of colurs and layout..less is more :)-

need a little time to adjust to the colors and style ..

its ok .. phillipp.. google give that poor guy a heartattack when the share dropped to $38/- – so I think its only fair that you give the forum members a minor heart murmer too.. – yeah that falls into the 20% contriubtion bucket!! :)-

Ludwik Trammer [PersonRank 10]

Oh, and the first post is too close to the top of the site. Nobody looks there ;]

David Hetfield [PersonRank 10]

Certainly jumps out at you – that's maybe (?) a good thing – gotta think/use this for a while to see if it "sinks" in.

One thing I'd consider is going to a more fluid layout – you appear to still be fixed width – allow it to spread out a bit for wide monitors.

Ditto that I didn't notice the Headlines before – better title for this. I kinda liked the old circular 80% Google logo ... but as implied above, I may get used to the new one – time will tell.

P.S. Played around a bit more before I hit "submit" ... the colors are definately "retro" ... but I think it is starting to grow on me already ... and it looks like the Mass Media has noticed too!

No offence Philipp, but I don't like that layout either.

I can still see the new layout in some of the archive pages.

Philipp Lenssen [PersonRank 10]

14 years ago #

Thanks, I'll run an update... should be fixed in 5 minutes.

I like the new sidebar!

David Hetfield [PersonRank 10]

14 years ago #

yeah.. the new sidebar is nice..

thanks for sticking with the old layout Philipp :)

Philipp – please keep the old layout. I really don't like the 'new' layout. Thanks.

OREO [PersonRank 10]

Follow the google pattern.. keeping things simple with the same basic look of the search engine. I was so depressed when techcrunch got its new redesign. I really don't like when sites (especially ones I'm emotionally attached to) recieve a "plastic" surgery.
