Too bright, too white, have to scroll much more, The main picture is too big, I find it harder to scan the headlines. I liked having the top section with the most important stories and then below just having them by age (although I struggle to understand why the exchange 2010 rollup 8 story was not there. That borked my mailserver and I am still picking up the pieces!)
It just seems a bit marathon bar and/or ain't broke don't fix it to me. Same content but why do it?
