      I love KDE but they really have mixed tastes. I like a lot breeze dark and most of the desktop apps, but the whole of kirigami looks like a badly dated implementation of material design concepts (without the style) with unnecessary changes (like their hamburger menu being on the bottom left instead of top, just because).
      actually not "Just because" but because it is smart to put navigation items on the bottom, like Nokia Meego also did - it is easier to reach. The habit of putting things o top in Andriod is pretty problematic now smartphones get bigger and higher.

      Google will introduce an address bar on the bottom in chrome, same with hamburger menus, I guess. Actually there is already an experimental setting for chrome on mobile.

      you can dislike the looks but the usability had a fair amount of thought put into it.

        'Modern' is the 'old' in the future...
        We're looking 3D not flat. (A knob is knob.)- You're not alone.

          ah, I get the bottom nav being easier to reach and hadn't thought it would be because of that hehe. a nice alternative to google's recent bottom nav tabbar madness
          but in general it has a weird gingerbread vibe as someone else mentioned

          look at this screen from the kirigami page, what were they thinking with that kind of header! The Dive list text has no padding, uses a light font yet it's small
          also the FAB, its little friend (why is it bottom aligned tho), and the hamburger toggle don't cast a satisfying shadow and makes it seem cluttered blending with the list
