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.

No, it's not as bad as all the whinage would indicate.

But of course, whinage is what powers Web2.0.

Yes, the application menu had been there the whole time.

On the whole, I can't get worked up about it much. It doesn't suck. It's sort of broken, but it doesn't suck. And my app still works.

I agree with you ... it is not so bad. It will take some getting used to, just like the most recent "new" facebook homepage did. I just wish they would not act like it is something we could change prior to like not opt-in to the change since it happened anyway.
