Flickr Hulks Up

Arg! Flickr has gone all Incredible Hulk as part of the newest update. Now titled Flickr Gamma, the new look has more dropdown menus, more images on the first page and moves the Sets icons from the left to the right of the page.

My first impression on this new look is: Me no likey.

I'm sure it'll grow on me or something, but right now I'm not a fan. One of the things I loved about Flickr was how clean it looked. The first page had a single column of pictures and everything was sparse with lots of white. Now I feel the page looks cluttered.

Too many images. Too much stuff. Not enough white.

And as you can tell from this blog, I like white. It's just so clean and easy to look at. Plus it shows up smudges on my monitor real good!

I actually like how there's more pics in the photostream, I don't think it looks any less clean or professional. I'm just irked that with all their fancy schmancy improvements, you still can't auto-arrange pics in sets by title. Grr..
