Well, if this is in regards to G+ then I have to side with them. The new layout is buggy and crap.

[queue rant]

Buggy:

- Periodically, the 'share button options' will fail to complete. So you'll click the 'Link generation' button and nothing happens the whole G+ UI locks up and you need to reload the entire page, which isn't exactly ideal since then the entire stream is reloaded and you now have to try and find what you originally wanted to link (this also happens with the other Share Options)

- Periodically, the post you click on will fail to load the comment text input box just a continuous blue loading bar will run and the entire site has to be reloaded (see above why that is not ideal)

Crap:

- 'About' section is gone, which is hilarious because stuff like "Sites" and "Contributor to" is still there even though no one will ever be able to see it because the " i " on the profiles links back to your About section.

- Can't share to more than one circle.."Choose one"...what.the.fuck. Maybe I want to share something to two of my circles. Like...oh I don't know the Bookmark circle, which is private and I use daily to save posts to view at home. But I'd also like to share it to, say, my Gaming circle. Nope. Have to make two separate posts (each one capable of proccing the above 'Sharing Bug').

- MOTHER FUCKING WEBP EXTENSION. Holy fucking Jesus. I don't want to save this still image (that's probably a JPG) as a WEBP. Windows doesn't natively support that extension! PHOTOSHOP DOESN'T SUPPORT IT EITHER! So now I have to find a codec for Windows and Plugins for Photoshop...which haven't been in 'continuing development' so may not work with Windows 10 or Photoshop CC.

To top it all off, there's no option to not use WEBP. Instead, you have to generate a link (that can proc the above 'Sharing Bug') and then paste it into MS Edge, which doesn't support WEBP and thus G+ uses the standard JPG.

I get that it uses less bandwidth than even JPG and that's awesome, but until it's a mainstream format for Internet use; don't force me to use it.

In short, the 'new' G+ takes steps backwards and makes it frustratingly hard to use the platform for what it is; Social Sharing.

I am going to do this! Starting today or next weekend.  

The TLDR is this.

Watch in this order.

 - Episode IV: A New Hope
 - Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
 - Episode II: Attack of the Clones
 - Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
 - Episode VI: Return of the Jedi

So here we go. . May the force be with you all.

Have you tried out watching Star Wars in the "Machete Order"?
Is the Millennium Falcon alive? That's just one of the questions answered when I watched the original Star Wars films in the popular Machete Order.

Just make sure you watch Harmy's Despecialized editions of the originals. They are far and away the best versions and quality. You also have lots of options for sound tracks and subtitles.
