YouTube today rolls out its experimental redesign. The name of the new endeavor should appeal to geeks and animal lovers alike: Cosmic Panda.
YouTube describes Cosmic Panda as “a new experience for videos, playlists and channels.” The interface is more streamlined, fully separating the comment stream and related videos from the one you’re watching. Those videos now appear alongside the comments below the main screening area.
Cosmic Panda also allows Chrome users to continue watching a clip while moving between videos, playlists, and channels, and provides more page designs and better editing tools for customizing personal channels.
