    I don't mind the layout so much (although I do prefer the old one with less white space and more threads/page shown). But IMO the huge problem with this format update is that new pages are taking incredibly long to load (not sure if the video ad is part of the problem) that it is frustrating slow to use. Admittedly I don't have the newest computer, but the upload speed is fine for work and for every other application I have.
