I don't care that it's bright, I just think the layout is more difficult to use than before.
The links from the left hand side of the screen that I thought were gone are apparently still there, but only if you make the window very large. The links just disappear if you make the window slightly smaller than normal.
This is very annoying, because I usually use half of my screen for browsing and the other for multitasking in other programs. I know many people who browse the internet this way.
All that stuff with the little boxes about "newest hacks, newest translations, random images" should be kept on the home page. I can see how it would be handy for quickly checking what the newest things are, but when you've already picked what section of the site you want to browse, all that stuff does is take up space.
I think the links that are on the left are much more useful for quickly navigating the site than annoying dropdown menus or the new boxes on the right. If the links didn't disappear I wouldn't mind this redesign at all. Maybe instead of hiding them the stuff on the right could be hidden instead. Or change it from 2 columns to 1 in small windows. That stuff takes up nearly half of the page.
EDIT: I noticed the stuff on the right DOES change to 1 column if you make the window really small. If that happened before hiding the links on the left then the layout would be fine.
That's just my opinion anyway. I'm not making any demands
