  3. Get rid of the autoplaying videos ASAP.

    I was looking up iPad mini reviews. I found what looked like a good review on your site, but within seconds of the page loading, it started playing a video. I left, and I won't be back.

    I don't understand why you have them. People hate these things, without exception. They're obnoxious. They can be embarrassing if you're in a room with other people. They're a really disrespectful thing to have on your site. Please get rid of these things.

  5. Pop up video impedes edge of text

    I'm on this article (https://www.engadget.com/2019/05/26/amds-third-gen-ryzen-9-cpu-is-a-12-core-powerhouse-for-499/) but the video that pops up when I scroll down kind of covers a letter or two at the ragged right edge of the text. Maybe you should fix that. It looks like a mistake and is so distracting to me I stopped to write this to you instead of taking in your content. Bummer.

    Hey. DO NOT send me spam to my e-mail address or I will report it as such. I ******* hate that stuff.

  7. Ads seem to be affecting page performance lately. I am getting 10+ seconds of load time before I am able to start scrolling to read.

    I understand that ads pay the bills, but please ensure that they don't interfere with performance and basic usability.

  8. Date articles

    Put the date of every article below its headline. I can't tell by looking if I'm reading something that is 1 day or 1 year old.

  10. Returning from article page does not return to where you were

    When you read an article then click back you end up at the top of the article list again rather than where you were up to. Happens on all platforms in Chrome. It has been broken for months now.

  11. Make it easy to distinguish between articles and ads on your Web site. You are as bad as the Yahoo Tech News site in that regard.

  12. So many ads. Wow! I also needed a calculator.

    So many ads. Wow! So many ads that I don't know what is news or not. Maybe one per page, but phew. See ya later. My idea is to go somewhere else till you figure out how many ads are too many ads

  14. Go back to separate pages rather than one long feed

    Having one long feed is a pain when you click on an article and then go back - it takes you back to the top of the feed and you have to scroll and click to get back to where you were. Now I have to remember to right click, open in new tab, then close that tab when I'm done. It was much easier with the separate pages as it was before.

  15. Dark mode

    Dark mode at top of home page. 2020 and still no website dark mode!? As a tech review site surely you’ve heard of this style favoured by most users these days! Save our eyes!

  17. Social Media buttons at bottom of mobile pages too easy to select.

    The buttons stuck to the bottom of mobile webpages will trigger even if your finger starts on it but swipes up. This causes those sites to repeatedly load and interrupt the content on your site. Please remove them completely, or at the very least fix their behavior to avoid accidental touches from opening the sites.

  19. signing in without needing a code EVERY time

    Your preferences say
    "How you sign in
    You receive a one time password in email to sign in."

    but this is not true. Every time i get a news letter i need to log in i need to go BACK to my email to get a 4 Digit Code to log in. EVERY time.

    Not only is it Very Annoying, it literally stops me from even visiting the site. so unless you'd rather me (and likely MANY possibly most of your other readers) just not visit becuase its just not worth the trouble on this story than fine.

    but if…

  20. redirecting to guce.advertising.com when I try to read a story

    I look at this site while at work, and I guce.advertising.com is blocked. For example: https://guce.advertising.com/collectIdentifiers?sessionId=1_cc-session_02230267-8175-4929-be85-01131bd282a8

    You used to do this when going to the home page, but removed it, now its on every story...
