Bring Back The Old Google News Design

19 days ago, Google launched a redesign for Google News. Many many many users absolutely hated the design. Last week, Google finally responded with a tweak to the design, giving people a way to show a second column.

But many still miss the basic old layout that they have grown to love.

If you are one of those, and if you use Firefox, you can download a greasemonkey script to get the told design back.

A Google News Help thread discusses the script, which can be viewed here and downloaded here. Note, this is not something Google put together, it is written by a third-party.

Hopefully that helps some of you who really hate the redesign.

At the end of the day it is good to test different things and Google probably had good data showing them that maybe going back to the old feel made sense.
