Why Medium Why?

Making things worse one update at a time.

I’d noticed a change in the Medium layout a week ago & groaned at everything being shifted but was too busy to explore.

Now I just sat down to type up an article & recognized they’ve scrapped their image layout. From what I understood Medium has gotten to where it is because they made it easy to pump out decent-looking articles.

Now it’s one size fits all with desktop views looking no different from the mobile.

Who is greenlighting these changes that make it less intuitive to navigate & harder on the eyes?

And are there people out there who like this? If you do, please speak up. I’m having trouble seeing any benefits.
