Back in 2006 when I made my first Youtube account everything was very easy to navigate. I knew where everything was when I needed it and then as soon as Google made their purchased I noticed minor changes over time, but it was never anything too severe. Fast forward up until' late 2010, 2011, 2012, and now 2013 it has become slightly more advanced and very ugly. I used to be able to watch videos and do other crazy shit without worrying about my browser crashing. This seems to happen ALL the time now on the new Youtube. People can try to justify it all they want, but I agree with everyone else when they call it a piece of shit.
