Google is redesigning Google News on the desktop again and I kind of hate it

My favorite version of Google news is from 2006. It was a lean, austere, two-column design, that prioritized HTML text over aesthetics. The look was so function-first that Google News soon became my homepage.

To this day, the very first thing I open in the morning is Google News. It’s the single best way to get a broad overview of news of the world across a wide swath of categories. Judging by the amount of traffic sites like my own, TechRadar, receive from Google News, it’s a popular homepage for millions of others, as well.
