I don't like it. How do I view just main news, the front page seems to be a combination of all three(software and games)? Although it doesn't seem to be the newest from each, just random ones.

Also, as others have said, too cramped

When you browse to game and software news, the blue color theme doesn't change to the traditional green or grey. The layout doesn't make use of high resolution monitors. Ads appear to standout because of the lack of page scaling. Comments system when quoting a previous reply seems a bit buggy. v4 themes are no longer supported. Thanks for killing the main page. :(

The ad placement in the middle of the page is ANNOYING. The text of the articles could be smaller. The front page layout is just WAY too cluttered. The buttons under the first article feel out of place and are in the way. Basically, the front page just looks like someone just randomly put things there without thinking about the usability.

I do like the overall look, but it needs a lot of work in order to be considered usable. In the end, if I could switch back to the old one, I would.

I've gotten used to the new design now, but the colour scheme in my proffesional and honest opinion is vile! Even a small tweak of changing the background colour would improve it...

The only thing I like about it are the colors, they're beautiful. That said, I pretty much dislike everything else. Like others have said, it is way too cramped, it all just looks like it's been pushed together. And the ad placement now is, well, really irritating.

Is there a way not to use this skin?

Ugh. Tough..I like the old one so much. This new one looks cluttered for some reason. I'm sure I'll get used to it in time. Still, very nice by all standards.

I liked the old one MUCH better. Will the old headline view make a return or can we use the old skin?

For those griping about the fixed width. We may add the ability to resize it just a tad (max width, maybe an addition 100or200 pixels). But it will not be 100% like shift was. This is a design choice.

I dont like it at all, where is the auto update of foum posts etc? Now you have to refresh the page either with the browser button or F5 clicking the little refresh button does diddly squat. Yes it looks nice, but there is no functionality in it any more.

Can we have the old version back?

I liked the old version much more. This new version just looks plain and boring and the width of the page is way too narrow.

Hmmm...Judging by all the posts of disdain for the site's design and cramped quarters. Here's a sure way to boost subscribership...

All those that are subscribed, will get the option to have the old design back. j/K

I even whitelist neowins ads to support neowin, but that ad is WAY to intrusive, I mean flash ad in the MIDDLE of the page? come on.

Looks beautiful, however I would suggest a bit more emphasis on the actual stories. Right now they seem to blend in with the rest of the site

Last time for Shift it went through almost 8 minor revisions before it went final. Judging by the comments here can we expect to see something similar for Finity?

Comments on main page, forum skin and width issues are the main concerns along with cramped news and not being able to see the news clearly. We understand the issues and they will all be addressed but for now just bare with us as we tweak it :)

The forum skin should come in days not months like last time ;)
