YouTube XL

YouTube.com/XL is kinda freaking me out. It's supposed to be optimized for TV viewing, but it looks like something created in 20 seconds to compete with Hulu Desktop.


Google's never been known for gorgeous UI, which is exactly what you expect from an interface optimized for TV viewing. (Like Boxee, Apple TV, Hulu Desktop, and TiVo.)

It looks and feels like a 20% project designed by some YouTube engineers, which it most likely was.

i like the interface. it loads quickly, is simple to search and not overly bloated. combine that interface with hulu's content minus the commercials and i'd be a happy surfer.
