A few days ago the layout of SE sites front pages has changed, to a considerable extent IMO.
I know that it is probably the result of a hard and carefully thought process of programmers and site designers, but I find it difficult see improvements from a visual perspective.
Profile icons are much smaller and details about up/down votes, answers etc. are less visible.
In what way is this new layout better or preferable to the previous one?
But probably it is just me.
