I find the new interface to be very difficult to use. Yes, I've adjusted the brightness setting. That's not the problem. It's not scannable anymore. The icons are all so similar that you have to focus on each one to tell the difference.

The major challenge is the layers panel. Not only is it impossible to scan easily because of the lack of contrast, but the layer icons are practically unusable. There is almost no good visual representation of most shape layers. CS 5 had a much more sensible layer icon for the shape layers. I now waste a lot of time searching for layers that used to be obvious. The folder icons don't even stand out anymore.

It may look sleek, but the visual prioritization is way off.
