So I spent some time on tinkering with a redesign lately. Here is a comparison of the current design and the redesign I'm currently working on. Click on the images to be taken to the page.
The redesign asks for a login. That's to keep spiders out. Name and Password both are test.
Update 29.08.2014:So far, the poll got 187 votes:
Switch to the redesign now: 92 votes = 49%
Keep improving the redesign: 75 votes = 40%
Keep the current design: 20 votes = 11%
Looks like the redesign meets broad acceptance.
Update 02.09.2014:After I saw the numbers on 29.08., I was wondering what the 40% of you who voted "keep improving the redesign" mean. Is it a statement like "Its not better then the current design yet, keep improving" or "It is better, but keep improving anyhow".
So I removed that option from the poll. Here are the results from the second phase of the poll with only 2 options:
Switch to the redesign now: 215 votes = 74%
Keep the current design: 76 votes = 26%
Update 08.09.2014:Looking at the vote statistics via Google Analytics brings up an interesting breakdown by device type:
