Gee, you make a website all flashy and graphicy and mavericky and it takes forever to load if it doesn't crash your browser first. But I need to know what Andy Katz thinks NOW!

Yes, and it tends to freeze up. I'm not going back until they get it cleaned up.

It's horrible. Why would they launch it with so many glitches? I don't see any improvement which stands out.

Hating it, too. What in the world was wrong with the old site?

It's kinda like recruiting discussions: New is always better!

si.com is running fine. Is there some other sports news website I should be aware of? :)

Same here, but I'm not a fan of the redesign. There was nothing wrong with how they had it set up before.

The redesign hides the links I clicked on most often and makes it difficult to find the articles I was most likely to read. Even the major headlines section was reduced in size. All for a few more graphics, it seems. Pretty poor update.

The new site has been working fine in Chrome for me. My computer has been a little slow today, but I think that's due to some of the other stuff I'm (supposed to be) working on. I didn't see a slowdown yesterday.
