The new homepage is horrible. Where is my inbox and what the hell do I care what videos my friends and, worse yet, those who I subscribe to liked. But then again, if YouTube's past is any indication of what will come, it should go like this: (1) Ignore all feedback and the obvious simple solution of at least allowing an option of which homepage you would like, (2) after realizing that people will come to their site no matter how horrible they make it, they decide to read user feedback to see what the users actually do like about the site and then proceed to work on abolishing those features, (3) laugh about how the community just eventually let go of the horrible "thumbs up" or "thumbs down" system, and then finally (4) sit back and count their money while laughing at useless posts like this one.
Now that I think of it, being owned by Google should, you would think, give my YouTube homepage the same features of arrangement that my Google homepage does. Why can't we just pick what we want, arrange it how we like, and move on. Do away with they betas, not worry about getting feedback like this thread, and give everybody what they like. That would make too much sense.
