YouTube is field testing a fresh look to their entire site. With a much cleaner UI, letterboxed videos, new playlist views and and much more elegant experience, I’ve got to say that I really like it.
If you want to try it, just go to http://youtube.com/cosmicpanda.
If you decide that you don’t like it or don’t want to switch just yet, you can always go back.
Client: “Whats your fees to do this template?”
Me: “$40 per hour.”
Client: “Thats steep. How do I know you won’t bill me for extra hours.”
Me: “If you want to be sure you can come and watch.”
Client: “No wiseguy, give me a call whenever you start working on it and whenever you take breaks. I will keep count of the hours.”
I can’t even begin to describe the amount of forms I’ve filled out on websites. Whether I’m registering for something, buying something online, etc. I’ve done it thousands upon thousands of times.
But here’s something I hate. When it comes time to select what country you live in, I absolutely despise having to scroll all the way down to the bottom of a list of ridiculously obscure countries to find United States.
I’m not saying that U.S should always be on the top (well, for most sites - I kind of am saying that) but it should at least have like a “top five most selected” list. Some sites do this and I just think it’s a nice usability touch that other sites should think about.
When I go on a website for the first time one of the first things I do is type things like “/wp-admin” or “/administrator” or “/admin” to see what platform the website is using.
More often than not, I strike gold with “/wp-admin”. Gotta love Wordpress.
Don’t judge me.
