On a slightly different subject to front page algorithms, I've found that my reading habits have changed a lot since the update because of a few minor things. (and not in a good way I'm afraid)
First, not seeing the number of new updated comics on the bookmark icon means I just...forget there are new updates. I usually leave some series to binge in one go at a later date, and others I read every new update as it comes out (depending on the story and genre). But now I can't see how many of my subs have updated unless I click every time, so I just lose track.
Then when I DO take a look, I can't open any of the comic links in new tabs on my desktop anymore. So I need to read them one at a time rather than load up 3-4 to go through. EDIT: This only seems to happen if I don't wait a few seconds first. If I wait (for things to load, I guess?), then I can open them in a new tab. So I can get around this issue for now.
On top of that, clicking on them doesn't bring me to the newest page anymore. I have to check on the page list which ones I've read/not read, and some are in Oldest/Newest order, and others vice versa.
The point I'm making is, I mostly use tapas as a creator. But as a reader, the experience has slowed to a crawl so much so that I only check my list once a week now, if that.
Does anyone else feel this problem, or is it just me?
And if it isn't just me, Tapas, will you be able to make some changes at all?
