There’s a new disturbing trend in website design. Fill up the page with whitespace.
One example is the new delicious. They went form a compact design, to a design cluttered with whitespace.
Google also did this with the new UI for Blogger, Google Analytics, and Gmail. For gmail, there’s an option to go back to the old-style compact layout. I stopped using Blogger and Google Analytics.
Is the same stupid UI consultant advising everyone? Is everyone copying the bad practices from everyone else.
A lot of websites now use a lot of whitespace and a very large font. It’s a disturbing trend.
