Confused jelly bean is a downgrade.

Jelly bean opperating system (jb) is horrible. Ice cream sandwich os (ics) wich we had previously had funtions I found more accomodating to my use of my device and that "upgrading" from ics to jb is actually a downgrade this is not based on anything else but oppinions i have, let me explain:

Iv'e had my tab since june and things from there started to downgrade.
First was youtube. It looked better back when we had like a 3-d wall and that was so much cooler than my ipod i had at the time wich i recently soled becuse i had no use for it any more the tab has a 16 (gb) card in it so that was 2 x my ipod, so ipod sat around since june when i got my tab. Well apple i guess dump youtube and after we had a update for youtube it lost its 3-d effect. Then related videos lumbed on comments made youtube constricting, i dont know about you but I enjoy reading those.

Second is the internet. The stock browser is jumping all over as i type and when i try to scroll down it enlarges, this is so irritating i cant even surf reddit or this fine forum , I might totally switch to chrome becuse of the amount of pages you can have open compared the stock 8

The third thing is the missing screen shot button, I thought it was dumb , until i started using to compare products off of amazon or checking/comparing stats on video games so it became really handy for me. I may have thought the function was "dumb" becuase i never had the privlidge to do it from ios besides the hold lock button and home button trick like the volume plus lock hold for android.

Lastly is button placement for the task manage and the notifications bar on top in the left corner. Buttons are further apart and spred out it is a burdensome pain on my hands .everything was more convenient where it was

So thats what iv'e noticed so far as i did the update yesterday and played xbox all day so I didn't take time to check stuff out .Beside the negitive is there at at any positive advancement ? I would like to love it but I'm not seeing it.
