Thumbs Down

They went to a nearly useless format with far too much white space and eliminated the article snippets, now showing basically only headlines. They've also dropped most of the customization features. Users are complaining that the ones that remain, don't 'stick' once set and have to be re-set often.

Their Product Forums are loaded with page after page of dissatisfied former users complaining about the new format and looking for alternatives.

So far, most of the tech websites have only posted the puff piece press release from G extolling the virtues of 'less information is better'. I'm waiting for them to catch up with the enraged masses and publish new articles.

Some of the alternatives that have been posted so far are better than the current G format, but not quite like the old G format.

The ones I've tried:

[SOLVED] Multiple BSODs
For the past month or so I have been getting a number of BSODs. It seems kind of random and occurs whenever I type in my internet browser's address bar. The weird thing is that it happens randomly. One moment I could type without worry and the next I get a BSOD. Below, I've posted the results of...
