So what exactly changed? Well, YouTube decided to change the order of its layout, adding a new location for comments. For veterans of the site, these changes seem unorthodox. Many feel that the site is just trying to cram mobile phone UI into the desktop experience, which ultimately some feel is harming the desktop’s usability. In response to the changes, one user tweeted: “oh what the FUCK youtube this new layout is actually horrible. i actually thought my browser was bugging out. this is so unreadable”
