I don't like moving the article pictures to the right. It feels counter-intuitive, as I need to read the title text from left-to-right anyways (and it's now separated). It's far more convenient to look at the picture (which should be the main appeal to the article) and then immediately read the title.
Also, it feels like the article titles are harder to read. So whatever font changes (or just because of the above) did not help.
