agreed. i hate trying to find the new way to do the same thing i've been doing for years.

I'm on this bandwagon as well. Mostly, I don't even see how the upgrade is supposed to be "improved" over the old site. The old site worked, had a nice appearance and I was used to it. Honestly, some of the so-called improvements make the sites less visually appealing and more complicated to navigate. And they probably spent a bundle of money to revamp... if this is a site I like to shop, I know who will ultimately pay for THAT!

Check out the new @ohcheri site though. I think it is much nicer.

Though the lack of a Deal of the Day link on the current daily deal page, at least for now, means an extra click to first go to the home page. Of course, the pix there make it worthwhile... ;)

I don't like it either, usually. Most of the time I get used to it shortly, though, and don't really care anymore because it often does work better or more smoothly.
However, the Target website is still atrocious compared to their previous site. It looks like a kid made it back during the first dot-com boom.

Change is bad! Change is bad!

Unless it's good. I really like the new AmEx website. Usually it just takes some getting used to.

@gewoodworth: Re: Target...no kidding! What were they thinking?!

@okham: True, there are exceptions to every rule (though I don't know the AmEx site). I liked the recent changes to the Discover site, but thought it was the exception to confirm the rule.

It depends on the site. Some I like, some I'm indifferent about, and some I hate.

I used to be a daily reader of Gizmodo, Kotaku, and Jalopnik. When Gawker rolled out the redesign for those sites the new design was so bad that after a week of trying to get used to it I just stopped going to them.

Pitchfork.com does is regularly, and they make a big deal out of it.

I'm glad websites change. Otherwise, they would all look like this: http://www.dokimos.org/ajff/

For about 5 minutes... then I get over it and notice all the quality improvements they've made.

I hate when changes are made to the websites I use for work. Since I do all the purchasing, and most is done online, when sites are "upgraded" it takes twice as long to navigate and finish what I need to for a few weeks.

@cmaxelson: Funny you should mention this. We had a big "upgrade" to our PeopleSoft purchasing system back in August and things STILL don't work right. It would be LOL if it wasn't so OMG.

You mean like when WOOT redesigned the website so it's too wide for my display? And went to the new baby-poop color scheme? Yeah, I kinda hate that.
