So rare for me to go on the desktop site these days. Usually go in through my smart tv, phone or tablet.
If it wasn't mentioned here, I probably wouldn't have known about the change for a couple of months.

Why must desktop sites look like phone apps?
A universal look & feel regardless of interface - helps to seamlessly move between them?

The thing that bugs me is when they put too much padding between content - I prefer it tightly packed. Luckily gmail offers an option to reduce spacing.

The company has applied Material Design to its website, adding more white space and a pinned search bar at the top of the screen.

Eaww!!

This design fad needs to stop, I paid for every inch of my screen and I want to see it used well...
So much wasted space , especially if your using a big 26-32" screen you get text as thick as your arm.

Atleast they finally have a dark theme, if only more websites can catch on, I am looking at you Facebook and mybroadband >.> , IT Professionals want dark sites, because staring at bright white sites all day strains your eyes.

Still works just the same, only reason I can think of for not being able to post comments is if the uploader decided to disable comments.

Just switch back to the 'classic' view.
