It would be great if PH kept it serious... out with all of the gimmick products such as the flurry of 'Trump' products and 'useless' bots

PH recently started testing a new design. personally I found it really hard to use. @tchret has saved me by updating his Good Old PH extension to make it fix the new design. See below screenshot for a comparison: left is the new default PH design; on the right is with this Good Old PH extension installed:

@_jacksmith @tchret It's pretty hard to use, maybe a mix between the new feed and the old main topics would be good. For now, I use the iOS app only, since it hasn't changed (yet)

@tsunaze what's hard to use? this design makes it more like the original ph design, where topics weren't a thing. personally I don't use topics and they just take up screen realestate for me. with this extension you can just for a topic (eg slack) then get a link to it: https://www.producthunt.com/topi...

@_jacksmith For example, I liked to listen to podcasts, and save books in lists so I could buy them for later, now I can't find them easily. But it's like Facebook's homepage changes, lot of people hates it at first, but they get used to it :)

@tsunaze i don't fully understand what you're saying. are you saying that you used to be able to save podcasts but the new ph design broke that workflow; or this extension doesn't allow you to do that? i agree this extension prob wont let you do that, as it just strips out all functionality back to the bare basics

@_jacksmith The new design broke "my workflow" for finding new games, podcasts, books. Everything other than the main (Tech) section.
