The new site has two columns of the same size with information in both, instead of one main content column (bigger) at the left and a sidebar at the right.
Some of the people I know that I´ve asked for their opinion told me that they liked the older site better, but couldn´t exactly tell me why. So I don´t know if they just prefer the old one because they are just used to it.
The older one maybe looks faster because it is cached, in the new one I´m working in a dev version, without any optimization.
Is better to have two columns of the same size instead of the typical sidebar? Could it confuse the user?
