Don't like the new look sorry :((
I was okay with previous Duolingo updates, but I really can't handle this new look. I'm literally squinting at the screen because the bright colors hurt my eyes. Also, it looks a lot less organized, too childish, and all in all less professional. I really want to continue using Duolingo in the future, but I don't think I would really stay motivated with a site I can't bear looking at. The font it also hard to read. Please change! Thanks~ :)
Same here. I wear glasses and have eye difficulty and I have a feeling its not helping my vision
The choice of colours and the brightness are just crazy. How can anyone think this is a good idea. This is not about like or dislike...this is about not being able to use the site because it gives me eyesore and headaches.
Use Dark Reader and maybe turn down your brightness a bit. The site works fine for me.
Yes, I have already installed Dark Reader. It really helps...It will take time to get used to it, but at least it makes it possible to focus on language learning rather than the constant discomfort of eye strain. I'm not usually that negative about changes, but I have never had any sort of trouble with any other website...ever. I don't even wear glasses. What were Duolingo thinking? I like the site...but this has been such an aggressive and reckless move from them, that it leaves me bitterly disappointed.
Same here. The yellow really hurts my eyes, and the new font in the forums is harder to read.
It's absolutely horrible.
Why does DL so insist on fixing things that aren't broken?
I think it's OK, but I miss my owls for finishing my trees. Now they just look like sick chicken.
I notice that something has changed, but I can't really put my finger on it. I don't remember what it looked like 2-3 days ago.
I don't see anything wrong with the current design. But I am a bit worried that learning a new language will hurt my eyes, as it seems half the users on Duolingo are half-blind or have overly sensitive eyes, judging by the forum posts the last couple of days.
I've held back on commenting for a little while while I get accustomed to it. I'm now accustomed to it and I detest it. The font is unattractive, and the colours are hideous. The yellow for the Level 5 is the worst, and although my vision is good, it still jars, so I can appreciate that people with sight difficulties are going to feel insulted. It seems incredible that Duolingo has asked someone to do this new look and then passed it. And quite frankly whoever did it should be ashamed.
I am still waiting for a dark theme like Youtube has but seems it isn't coming... Fortunately I use F.lux
