Opinion: Google Unleashes Terrible New Update For Google News Upon the Net

Rei shares their opinion of Google’s redesign of Google News: Google unveiled a “new look” for Google News, describing it as a “clean and uncluttered look.” New design features include a mostly empty “In the News” box for trending-topics, most of which you probably don’t care about; a double-height page header so that they can make the border around the search box inexplicably larger and add a four-option menu bar; large empty grey expanses that take up half the browser; and a new news section that presents half as many news articles per page. If you didn’t think you were having to scroll enough when using Google News, don’t worry — Google’s got your back with this new update. It’s safe to say that Slashdot reader Rei is not so fond of the Google News redesign. Have you had the chance to view it yourself? What do you think of the Google News facelift?
