Let me save you some time - it sucks!
I love this family of blogs - Deadspin, Lifehacker, Jezebel, Gizmodo are daily visits for me. But this new design is virtually unusable on my netbook (my main rig for websurfing). It’s Java based, I think, and has frames… I thought frames went out in the 90s! No scrollbars make it impossible to be quite sure if you’ve seen all of the features… it’s so bad, I’m just not going to visit the pages as much anymore.
These guys are on the cutting edge of tech, media, and snark. How could they get it so wrong? I wasn’t a huge fan of their last redesign, which altered how comments appeared and introduced hashtags… gah, it’s too Twitter-like for me. But it was a tolerable change and I mostly ignored the stuff I didn’t like.
I know they had a massive security breach… wonder if that’s the reason why they made the change? I just find it terrible and I’m really shocked that such a savvy group fucked this up.
