I just saw yesterday evening that Yahoo has completely redesigned Flickr
. Good surprise! ^w^
This website really needed a deep redesign as it was getting really outdated and not so appealing for users in 2013. Funny fact is that I was still complaining on a forum about an hour before it was released about when did Yahoo (owner of Flickr) will think about giving it a new facelift. u_u
So, what about it?
My favorite part is the revamped layout
, much more modern and eye-candy that the old website which almost never changed for many years, clean and minimalist; some parts reminding the Facebook timeline ‒ bigger avatars, header pictures ‒ may be a matter of taste (personally I'm not a great fan); art thumbnails are now tiled and fill the screen (again, this is a matter of taste. I usually prefer full white background on websites, but the new scheme there is good too).
But the rest isn't so good... Some parts are still using the old style (profile page, profile and account settings, picture uploading module) mixed into the new layout, glitches here and there, and the most noticeable detail is that the whole website is much slower especially for slow/old computers or low bandwidth Internet connexion.
Currently using a slower laptop, loading each pages makes the PC easily overheating, even worst that when browsing on deviantART.
And confusing, really confusing
. Ouch! O_____O
Good move from Yahoo, good-looking interface, but the main problems with this site are still here.
In overall, I like it, anyway hoping that it will not get boring to use after several weeks...
If you use Flickr, what do you think about this new controversial version?
