I don't want to get into any polemics here but there was a time "redesign" and "design update" weren't used interchangeably.
To me, what Airbnb did a couple of months back was a redesign, this is an update to Medium's homepage layout.
I'm with you on this one
Agree wholeheartedly with this. Possibly being a bit lazy with my post title writing!
Right! They should have kept the font they used to use earlier.
For me they're updating too much, quite every month something change (and for something I mean big features not just a box shadow... ) and this thing for me is getting very annoying .
Reminds me quite a bit of the latest Digg
The headings on Digg are allot clearer on OSX/Chrome though, font-smoothing's really washed them out at Medium
I love the new design, but it really annoys me on scroll that the right sidebar does not stay fixed or scroll properly with the rest of the content. Choose one or the other, but it seems like they chose somewhere in between.
