YouTubeLast night, YouTube launched a new design for the site - it is a pretty significant change.

The main thing you will notice is that the videos are much higher on the page. It takes up more space horizontally and adds various navigation to encourage you to watch more videos.

Here is a screen shot:

The first issue i noticed was that there was a massive white space on the right.

I had been seeing this design popping up every now and then for quite some time now. I was wondering when they were going to roll it out. I am not a huge fan, but then again it is something new and I find my reaction to new layout changes always take a little while to get used to. I will reserve my judgement until I have had some more time to interact with the interface.

Yeah what's with that? It's a complete waste. To make it look nice they could have at least centered it...
