Gawker and it’s network of sites just went through a full redesign recently, and now the numbers show that I, a long time reader of Gawker’s sites, am not the only one who absolutely loathes the new layout. Gizmodo, one of the networked sites, dropped 4 MILLION page visits in one day.

My only guess would be that the new format is supposed to cater to those surfing with a tablet / iPad, or maybe alienating more than half of their readers is part of their marketing strategy.
