Does anyone else feel like the newer software and websites that come out today look so plain or is it just me? I personally hate the whole movement of software converting to mobile devices and competing with the newest design ideas of other major companies. I use to love the look of some websites like Moviefone, for example, but now it just looks so boring. I get that designers want to get with the times, but this new art style to me just sucks. I feel like everything from the past was so much more user friendly and more graphically appealing. Microsoft Office 2010 looks so much better than 2013 and most likely will look better than 2015. Yet designers are following that same style Microsoft used even though it looks poorly made and didn't follow the art principles. It's too bad that the looks need to keep changing.
It probably seems very silly to you. I'm just a huge computer person, and I miss the older stuff.
