Mouser needs to stop
« on: March 17, 2019, 07:31:26 PM »
They keep tweaking the site and frankly it's a downgrade IMO. They seem to be utilizing fewer columns in search results (which I found really useful since you can easily compare specs). I much prefer the old way!
I own madbeanpedals (duh). I am part owner of Function F(X).

Yeah, it's much worse imo.

On a parametric search sometimes it eliminates a spec that is really important to the search.
I'm also running across a lot of errors such as a cap being listed as 0.02uF instead of 0.022uF.
I had a part number so I knew it was 0.022uF according to the manufacturer.
Same with incorrect specs and there is no consistency for certain parameters.  So on a search, some results for parts may not even show up that fit what you are looking for.
I cross reference through multiple distributors now on searches.  Digikey changed their search as well, which is also not the best.

I suspect they are trying to make the site more tablet/ phone friendly.  But there should be a way to do it and keep all the functionality.
