after 11 pages I think all I have to do is agree. this new layout sux! I like how google bought youtube, a system that worked and google said "we can make it better" but like any "great" idea google has, they completely killed it! why do you insist on making things harder and less customizable as pc's get stronger and better. this makes no sense. i know i'm really excited when "smarties" limit how and what i'm able to do. I'm pretty sure googles goal at this point is to bring down everyones productivity level because that's the way i'm seeing all their products go. google should just merge with microsoft so they can truely limit how everything looks/works/runs.
