Every time a site or service changes its look even a tiny bit, someone gets upset — so it shouldn't be surprising that some folks' feathers are looking ruffled after YouTube made some tweaks to its homepage design.
According to a post made by Kurt Wilms, a YouTube product manager, on the official YouTube Creators blog, most of the new changes are "a result of the feedback" YouTube users gave about the video service.
There are now bigger video thumbnails which show more information about videos, a menu which lets you adjust what appears in your homepage feed, a bit of extra differentiation between watched and unwatched videos, and a couple of miscellaneous settings.
None of the tweaks appear to be tragically changing the look of the YouTube homepage, so it's unlikely that there will be any user protests a la Facebook Timeline. But there are still some annoyed users lurking in the comments of Wilms' blog post — though they are certainly more polite and eloquent than typical YouTube commenters.
