For those of you who get your E-News from Google News, you probably have seen how they rolled out a "new, improved" version. The old version was densely packed with lots of stories, a sidebar, and the first line of each story under the headline:

Good

Now they've "improved" it for Gen Y/Z Web 3.0 with tons of white space, just headlines, and giant fonts:

Gay

Somehow, of all my devices, my phone still had a tab where I could load the old layout, and it was current news. I tried to type in the same link, but it kept redirecting me. I tried to find a workaround, and I found people bitching about it on Google's forums, and this guy had a hack:

Basically you download a Chrome extension called "User Agent Switcher"
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/user-agent-switcher-for-g/ffhkkpnppgnfaobgihpdblnhmmbodake?hl=en

This lets you spoof your browser so websites think you're on another OS/Broswer. If you set it to "Windows Phone 8"--you get the old Google News! The only drawback is you have to turn it on and off manually; supposedly he has a way to make it only spoof Google News but I can't get that to work, so while it's on I get a phone optimized version of some other sites. But it's easy to turn on and off.

It probably won't work forever, but it's good for now!

Too bad this extension doesn't fix the fake news problem.
