Technorati’s New Design: Good or Bad?

This is old news by now, but Technorati‘s got a new layout. A couple of weeks ago, I was surprised when I headed over to Technorati to search for something. I was shocked to see a new design. I immediately checked out Digg, and other websites to see what everyone was saying about it. I’m still not sure if I like it better than the old one or not. What do you think?

Here are a couple of screenshots comparing them:

The Old Layout

The New Layout

They’re both good, design-wise. I really like whitespace on the old one, and I think the logo looks better on white than metallic green. The main page on the new one looks a bit more organized. There are good things about both designs, and some bad as well. I don’t like the ticker at the top of the new design, and I think it was dumb to put an add above the logo on the old design.

What do you think? Which do you like better?
