YouTube tweaks site design, puts more emphasis on playlists in the sidebar

Google launched a few tweaks to its YouTube page design, which brings back a design feature long thought to be gone forever: center alignment. With the last major redesign, YouTube started pushing all content to the left side of the screen, a decision that many found so irritating they created browser extensions to revert the change.

The “What to Watch” feature and subscription list have been given more prominent placements on the home page.

The new design also places additional emphasis on playlists, adding the video collections to the site’s left-hand sidebar. The new section includes not only playlists created by the user, but also by channels the user has subscribed to. Finally, the playlist editor has been revamped to make it easier to use.
