I've registered just to post this.
I find the new website design to be extremely amateurish.
As Messenger Plus moved from being something developed by one person, to something under a company, I am surprised to see the website that came into existence under that one person be potentially torn of its beauty and replaced with something that looks like what an amateur would be making.
Under a company, I would expect more resources to be available to be able to be devoted to things, and while I appreciate the addition of features, I find it extremely strange that steps have been taken to actually reduce the visual appeal of the Plus product and website, which must have involved time and effort.
I'm not falling under the "if it's not broken, why fix it" banner entirely.
While if I had to choose between the old site and the new site, I would immediately go for the old (which has aged amazingly well). But if resources absolutely have to have been devoted to a visual overhaul, I find it absolutely horrible that something this low of a quality could have come into existence. Once again, this amateurish creation is under the banner of a company, not an individual.
I'm going to just end this post with an example, from a product that has also moved from an individual effort to a company effort. It also happens to have a large userbase of younger people. Guess whether this logo ended up going final?
