Reversed accents here. Characteristic names should be small, values should be big.

Why? Because people actually care about values, not titles. There’s no point for me in reading “Play Time”. But “6 hours” is actually a valuable information and should be put first.

I don't know what I want to look at more:

- the absolute lack of contrast and separation between the elements?

- the artefacts as it tries to paint the sidebar?

- the weird behaviour of the file format section?

When left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing.

How long should animation be? Somewhere around 100 ms.

How long is an animation at Apple’s website? 1300 ms. 13× too long!

And that’s on a function you are supposed to use often!

Center: If everything has an icon, nothing stands out.

Right: Muted, almost hidden _actual_ result (Nothing found), replaced with promo bullshit nobody asked for
