      Netvibes removed previous thread w/ the most complaints/votes of its awful update:
      http://faq.netvibes.com/forums/214378-general/suggestions/17479012-i-hate-new-reader-app-view .

      GONE! I tried to open it and it redirects to this thread instead.

      Now that speaks volumes--Now they're censoring how many actually HATE this change!

      They know and they don't care.

      Just found 12/21/16 Update Response from Netvibes on its English & French Netvibes Blog entry "New Reader App View" w/ 113 comments/complaints dated 12/19/16. http://blog.netvibes.com/

      It begins: "You spoke, we listened. In the next few days, Netvibes will update font colors on the dashboard for better contrast and visibility, so you can easily read your articles.

      Thanks for your comments and feedback! Send us more suggestions for Netvibes here."

      What did NV say change back: Font color to a darker gray... Nothing else, despite complaints for being unreadable, unusable cut off healines & more.

      The rest of the post goes on to NV's justification of its revamp and praising-itself marketing jargon of its changes.

      For anyone wanting to cut/paste their own complaints made on this thread over there, I'm sure it wouldn't hurt... NV made a response to complaints over there and must be watching moreso than on here.

      I'm now trying out igHome and Protopage.

      Downgraded update renders scan-at a-glance unreadable and unusable. Visually, this is an infantile mess that is nonfunctional for its purpose. No point in sticking w/ something that is completely frustrating. I keep checking back user comments for posted suggestions for competitors' alternatives... and then I'll be gone.

      Anonymous, where are the advanced settings that make it look better? Can you direct me/elaborate? If you mean the individual settings for each app (4 dots in the formation of a square in the app header), I note that:

      Condensed at short/med/tall is still the same w/ no line wrap/cutting off the text that I can't tell what the article is about.

      List at short/med/tall is the same as Condensed except for the line spacing w/ a faint gray line, but still no line wrap/cutting off the text that I can't tell what the article is about.

      Normal at short without scrolling a little closer to what was previously existed w/ the text line wrap, but awfully hard to read read gray color and displays only 3 articles (too few for rss feed scanning). With scrolling, 27 (too many) or so articles w/ pictures/photos (which I don't want). ALL IN BIG UGLY UNATTRACTIVE FONT THAT TAKES UP TOO MUCH SPACE, rather than lending itself to displayed articles at a glance which is what a dashboard is supposed to b. e I HATE HAVING TO USE THE SCROLL BAR TO SEE CONTENT & WAY TOO MANY ARTICLES W/ PICS. Once directed to the website, I could view other content at will—the point being, I had no need for your scroll bar before changes, but now it is just a substandard workaround to try to navigate what I want to read, but useless in scanning at a glance.

      Normal at Med/Tall - Same as Short only longer list of articles w/ pictures.

      Mosaic: RIDICULOUS, AWFUL, DON'T EVEN BOTHER W/ THIS MESS--A CHILD COULD PRODUCE BETTER AESTHETICS/DESIGN!!! Defeats the whole purpose of a dashboard to scan/read at a glance.

      Hovering added, but it takes too long to do that for every article just to get a gist of understanding of what the article is about (especially where no line wrap). LABORIOUS FOR USERS TRYING TO FIND A WORK AROUND TO SCAN/READ AT A GLANCE.

      Sorry, but no matter what they do to this MESS OF A TEMPLATE that has ruined Netvibes Basic Apps View, it will never even come close to what was before the 12/19/16 changes that users enjoyed.

      My only question to Netvibes is: SERIOUSLY NETVIBES, WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOUR THINKING IN ROLLING OUT SUCH A DECREASED INFANTILE MESS--YOU HAVE EYES THAN CAN SEE HOW H-O-R-R-I-B-L-E THIS VERSION IS!!! You were at the top for so many for so long; now you are at the BOTTOM OF THE WORST.

      Fire your developers, designers and programmers and whoever headed up these changes and put this out there and PUT IT BACK THE WAY IT WAS. Long standing users are searching elsewhere in drovesto duplicate what we had before in Netvibes. YOUR PRODUCT IS NO LONGER USABLE OR READABLE AS YOU'VE MADE IT NOW.

      OMG Netvibes, what have you done to our App View basic dashboards--it's horrible, dull, drab, and not very pleasant to look at or inviting to read! I loved my dashboard--in fact I was addicted to it--I set it up to view just I wanted w/ a theme to match my room decor, had as many articles that I wanted, could hover over the line item to get a preview--now it looks infantile w/ a huge font that nowhere near displays enough articles/content or on the flip side it's a boring plain list of the same font in each app w/ way too many articles, when I can open directly on the website to view more to choose to read what is offered there--your taste in esthetics and design is awful--sorry but it's obvious. And, you got rid of the hovering preview--bummer! NOW it's just plain UGLY. I'm so sad, did I say I loved my dashboard before this change. Netvibes was great w/ so many choices to allow the user creativity to design what was pleasing to them. PLEASE OFFER A CHOICE FOR REVERSAL. Hoping others will post comparable competitors that offer what users lost here. Netvibes, you really messed up big time this time.
