Google normally randomly enters a few users into experiments using cookies, as I accessed YouTube without using any cookies, the new cookie randomly assigned happened to activate that layout, it'll probably change a bit before being introduced but major changes are coming.

Some people get randomly selected for stealth beta testing. This is normal practice for YT. Must go by IP range considering he's signed out.

Frankly this new channel design looks a bit better and less minimalistic. The video player though, there really isn't much of a point for them to change it in such a manner.

Of course this could just be a hoax and someone just installed a Stylish skin.

The place was basically smashed after Cosmic Panda, and then after One Channel they proved that no matter how bad things got, people would still use the platform- so much so DailyMotion is following their lead now, where they used to just kinda do their own thing.

The new player and channel layout could certainly be worse, so I doubt there will be the same uproar there was last time there were major changes. Just YT being YT now I guess- we can all pretty much expect there to be some sort of weird change this time of year.
