The redesign is another Google disaster.
The new "Edit Personalization" is a very simple tool. It worked better before.
A few months ago, a block of users were randomly selected and switched to the beta of the new design. The comments were furious and angry. People hated it. Instead of double columns, there was a single column. That meant more scrolling. Google also added a large block of items at the top that couldn't be removed or edited.
The test was over and a sigh of relief.
And now, that redesign has been forced on all users. Look at the comments and feedback. People hate it.
But Google doesn't care.
