The new YouTube (July 2011) is irritating. Is there a way (or option) I can get the old layout? I tried enabling HTML5 but they changed that layout to look similar to their Flash layout. I hate it. Do you guys have any suggestions?

You can still switch back and forth between Cosmic Panda and the old layout here: http://www.youtube.com/cosmicpanda

I just did it now.

Its not the old style but i did not find it as annoying as the new. Accepted. – acidzombie24 Aug 17 '11 at 13:43

It seems like there is no way to switch back to old YouTube. Almost all of the users are extremely dissatisfied about the new layout. There are some discussions about the issue on YouTube's Help Forum. No working solutions, though.
