Facebook Makes Subtle Design Tweaks

Noticed anything different about Facebook today? The rounded corners are gone. The corners, which according to The Washington Post, have spurred debate throughout the Facebook team since their inception a few years ago.

Facebook reportedly says, "Since we introduced rounded corners to Facebook, their consistent use has been spotty at best. The corner radii vary, and it sometimes feels arbitrary which corners are rounded and which are not. Additionally, they add an extra layer of complexity to the code (note: IE, please add support for border-radius). As part of the effort to simplify our visual style, the design team recently decided to go back to our square corner roots. In doing so, we hope to champion cleanliness and the razor cut look that Facebook is known for."

Did you see the changes? What do you think?
