    • Is the new layout where you have the separate column on the right side with all the recent articles? If so, then I also prefer that layout. I friggin’ hate the other layout because I can’t quickly peruse over articles that look interesting.

  1. I always use the UK site but I’m starting to like Jezebel less and less. I feel like they’re becoming too focused on getting people to click on lots of articles instead of providing interesting/amusing/thought-provoking content.

  2. Oh my god Riese you just saved my fucking life here. The new layout was slowly killing my soul and I stopped commenting because holy shit I hated it. But now, it’s beautiful again.
