I was reading a tech article with a screenshot of the YouTube layout in 2009 and was shocked at how readable it looks to my eyes today.
I think I really like boxes with lines around them in my user interfaces. It helps my brain process what's on the screen. Also they are only showing 8 video thumbnails on the landing page.
Twist ending: I forced my browser to 1024x768 (a popular resolution in 2009) and suddenly 2019 YouTube is a LOT less overwhelming to me.
Still miss the boxes
