I'm not liking this at all. Ugly as F
I never realized Twitter had a website (kidding). But I never ever check Twitter on anything except iPhone.
I guess I won't be sure how much I like it until I'm looking at something other than a low-resolution screenshot.
Overall it's okay. I like the fact that they made the top navbar fluid. I just wish the content below also followed the same fluid layout.
There's something heavy-handed about that nav bar... it all feels over-deliberate, like I'm being hit over the head with it? Maybe the two different grays and the two or three blues up there are adding visual complexity.
Do you mean like it's trying really hard to be really simple? I can see that.
Yeah I think that's kind of what I meant. Like, make it simple, but make sure there's a lot of differentiation in everything so anyone can understand it, which actually leads to me thinking "why is that different to that, and that to that?" when it could all be, well, simple.
I was actually in the middle of rewriting the Twitter UI through a Chrome extension. Can't believe how behind they are with technology. But that looks like an improvement.
Looks like a huge improvement, so much cleaner! The custom tweet button color is a pretty bold move. Pity the font rendering still sucks on OSX.
Looking forward to trying it out. What I see in the screenshot looks nice.
