The new and improved(?) Netflix design

As you may or may not know, Netflix watch instantly changed their site design last night into something completely unusable.  I’m usually a fan of a good redesign, but in this case, in the words of the great Charles Barkley, “The operation was a success, but the patient died.”

So I have two suggestions to improve the design.  Either make the movie images so big that you can only browse one movie at a time:

Or shrink everything down so you can see every movie they offer on one page:

What do you think, sirs?

    I agree with you on the new design, it falls short. Its as if they took a step backwards. I didn’t mind the previous design. At least if felt contained and organized. My mouse gets out of control and I wind up getting more entertained by seeing how fast I can make the movie titles scroll than actually seeing a movie I want to see. If they want to improve their site they should expand the number of movies you can watch online. That would be a Great start.

    One word…. usability. The new design has gone backwards. This is a perfect example to designers of what not to do.
