GitHub's Design Update

June, 20 2020 Tech

In tech, "Curiosity never kills the cat", unlike in other professions as so many people claim. Just while going through my GitHub profile today, I observed a new GitHub Design Update and I enabled it.

And boom, I was amazed by the new UI/UX as one can now easily keep an eye on their followers, followings and likes. To be honest, I was even more amazed by how they avoided shoving the new update down everyone's throat but only enabling it on request.

Below is how the previous GitHub profile looks:

You should also be aware that the repository pages have been updated with a new layout to elevate features and project information. I also employ you to enable the update and enjoy the new features.
