The New YouTube test design looks elegant and is more of black-grey, that seems to direct major focus on the played video. The thumbnails of suggested videos in sidebar has gone bigger and the overall interface looks neat. A video size option has been added that lets you watch a video in 3 different sizes – standard, medium and large.

    Sleek. I like the look, though I miss the video thumbnails on the right when you visit a channel. It made for a lot easier navigation. Now we have an additional window/click to deal with? Not as great. 😛
