Thanks to the new and "improved" re-design, this site now looks like an app. Unprecedented in my experience.
Was this the intent?
I can't think of any other site that's taken this narrow approach.
I'm saddened. I really like it here but this (uber-grey) re-design hurts my eyes and has made my preferred method of using the site, via my macbook, an unpleasant experience.
I sincerely hope the feedback you're receiving will be a catalyst for positive change.
