Apparently youtube is testing a new layout of it’s website. And this time it’s not only a minor twist, it’s an actual change! I’ve noticed this on quite some profiles. However I still have some profiles where I still see the old layout.
I have to say that I am quite happy with the change I see. While using youtube on an almost daily basis the layout and usability really sucked.
The changes in the admin area with the improved uploader and editor over the past few weeks have already been a good and logical improvement but this new layout takes it to another level. Since it’s in the middle of the night and I am tired as hell I didn’t test to much whether this layout is visible all around the world or if it’s only partly visible right now. So I’d be happy if you hit me with some information whether you already see it or not and what you think about it.
Here are the first screenshots to give a first brief impression!
Like I said, I like the new youtube. Decent update and nice they understood that it was time to change! I think the overview and overall usability increased a lot. Definitely more happy with it’s current look & feel than before. So Google, well done!
