I think sometime around 2011, the Earth must have entered some kind of mysterious radiation field that drove all user interface designers insane, and we still hare stuck in that field. Stuff like this has been happening all over the place. One of the latest is weather.gov, which did a recent redesign that admittedly does make things work better on smartphones, but on desktop web browasers huge amounts of space are wasted and even in a moderately large window you have to scroll down a full screen hight to see the forecast. And that’s after their previous redesign, which also bloated the page and wasted space.
