Reddit Redesigns With 3 New Layouts For More Enjoyable Browsing Experiences

Reddit has unveiled three new looks for its desktop site to improve the viewing experiences of its users. The overhaul, which was over a year in the making, is now visible to “a small percentage” of Redditors.

Per the platform’s design team, Reddit’s previous code—which has remained largely the same for 12 years—lacked the flexibility for its engineers to introduce new features and improvements. The redesign would make getting around the network easier for both its community and developers.

Now, the site comes in three switchable modes: the ‘Card’ setting auto-expands images and GIFs, the ‘Classic’ version is an improvement to Reddit’s old “clean and concise” look, and ‘Compact’ condenses posts but highlights headers.

Fret not if you’re inclined towards Reddit’s original brutalist look. Its redesigners understand that many users might still want to view content with the older layout, and have thus left it as a fourth option. You can also access it through ‘old.reddit.com’.

More changes, such as a native night mode and keyboard shortcuts, are underway. View the three new layouts and learn more about the makeover here.
