So that new Facebook home page...

I know I'm going to get crucified for saying this, but it's not as bad as it looks.

The "Highlights" section? That's as bad as it looks, perhaps worse. Hate it. Wish I could switch it off. On the other hand, it's just annoying clutter.

Other stuff?

The "Publisher" (which replaces/modifies the status update section) is pretty nice, and provides some uniformity that was missing in all the different "update" panels. It's pretty slick.

"Highlights" wiped out all the application bookmarks that used to reside at the left of "home" but that's not necessarily a bad thing. If it hadn't I might have continued to fail to notice the "Applications" section of the floating status bar at the bottom of the page (floating! it's always there, regardless of how much you scroll!). Now it's the only (and completely consistent across all pages) way to access your applications. I guess I was just being stupid going back to "home" to find my apps if this has been there the whole time.
