They couldn't figure out how to make sign in a pop up modal window instead of a new window?
Interesting choice to make the nav background dark instead of white
Overall really clean though.
As a designer I find the redesign visually pleasing (apart from the adverts), but reading the comments on their rebrand blog post it looks like their regular users aren't all that pleased with the UX.
Always find it interesting getting the general publics opinion compared to people in the industry.
Logo doesn't do it for me.
But on a quick glance, the rest seems pretty good.
The top section, with the image standing out, is interesting. Makes it a bit more playful.
I do miss that fresh look they had, with the white/green colour scheme. Right now it all feels more toned down. Not sure if that fits their audience well. But I might be wrong.
Also is it just me or there's so much stuff going on the website? Like so many choices? I always get nervous when there's so many choices.
Scrolling through the headlines and everything seems much more scannable. Loving the left-to-right layout for each article. Nicely done Engadget!
WOW. Huge (!) improvement from the previous design. In awe.
That's a huge change from the over designed one of the past. Less is more. Overall I like it, It even encourages you to slow down to read and that's something considering that most tech sites overwhelm the user with so many distractions. Thumbs up for the team behind it.
Went in expecting yet another grid layout. Pleasantly surprised!
Love the new look and experience. Very good
I don't know why it's trendy for publications to have "islands" of content scattered around. Making the user's eyes dart all over the page to skim headlines is terrible... Especially when they're used to chronologically displayed content. Aesthetically, the redesign is nice... But it's not as usable.
I can't close the search form to get back to the main navigation
