I hate it too. It used to be so user friendly but now not so much.
I always change the appearance back to basic view, hoping it sticks to that format, yet when I log in the next time,it's back to the new style.
Wish they wouldnt change what's not broken.
Slightly off topic but in a similar vein, I notice google maps have changed their format too, making it more difficult to use
Just when I become adept at using these things, they change. I'm sure it's to confuse the more mature amongst us.
