VB3 still sucks

VideoBox.com came to their senses and put VB3 on hold while they tried to work out the bugs. I am sure the largely negative reaction from users was one reason. Now VB3 is back. From my point of view, VB3 still sucks. Some reviewers have pointed out a few advantages of VB3. For example, more niches make it easier to find videos of specific interest.

Nevertheless, here is why I do not like VB3.

I took a standard operation that I go through almost every time I access the site. It took 7 mouse movements and clicks under the old interface and 28 mouse movements and clicks under VB3. That means it is four times the work to get to what I am looking for. A second seemingly minor but very real frustration is that the pop-up floating windows often block the link I want to click. One has to back up and try to approach the link from a different direction to avoid triggering a floating window. Mouse-over pop-up windows may be the latest cool thing in web programming, but they are a pain in the ass for most users. The new VB3 is a slight improvement over the old VB3, but I still prefer the pre-VB3 interface and would like the option of continuing to use it.

At least one other reviewer commented that the quality was going down. With so many DVD's, (5 new every day at 5:00 AM PT), there will be some good and some bad. Also, VB tries to have something for everyone. In my case, only one or two videos per week interest me. That is a sufficient number to justify the $15 monthly cost.

messmer (137) Well, petefountain, I was one of those who tried to see the good in VB3 bust must confess that some of your irritants became mine as well and during the last part of my subscription I only used the old version. It's still there, except that you might have to sign in again.
