For starters it's really clunky and ugly, the reaction/emoticon bar takes up space and really does sacrifice readability. The red "New" line that indicates an unread message just has an ugly shape. Plus, in compact mode, it no longer merges messages and the timestamp on the left of each message takes up more space. Something else that bothers me a lot is how they slimmed down the space between messages. To be honest, overall the new UI is just ugly. The majority hates it. Discord should've stuck with the old one, it was much cleaner, less clunky, and less ugly. If it ain't broke, don't try and fix it.
