Heres the link to the new market preview. Engadget: Android Market Update The UI is very different but theres some problems with the new market. I have it but not digging it too much but the UI is very spiffy. You can also download the apk to update your market from there. This update has been around since like july i believe.

Damn 3.5.1 Market Application is crap!

At least Google called me back and talked me through getting it to update my Apps, but I'm still stuck with it defaulting to my hotmail Account and thinking I need updates I don't, and not showing my Apps. Damn thing won't keep the google account as the default, and hangs on an App update 50% of the time. It also crashs from time to time.

Now the Tech wants me to do a factory re-set on the phone and I'm not doing it when there app updated and now SUCKS a big one.

Also googles linking of Youtube also caused problems by adding a third account to the Market App and tried using it to update. Wish they had never linked Youtube to my back-up google account now I'm screwed even worse.

Can you tell I'm pissed at google? Well if not I AM!

Here is what the Tech had me do:

Thanks for contacting me, and it was my pleasure to assist you today. I'm
glad the we got this issue resolved for you. Below are the steps we did on
the phone today:

1. From your home screen, visit Menu > Settings > Accounts & sync, and you
should see the @youtube account listed. Tap the account, then tap "Remove
account" at the bottom of the screen.

2. After removing the account, clear the cache and data of the Market app
and the Download manager. Here's how:
- Visit Menu > Settings > Applications > Manage applications
- Tab over to "All"
- Select the Market app, and then tap "Clear data" and "Clear cache"
- Select the Download manager, and then tap "Clear data" and "Clear
cache"

If the issue persists after taking these steps, you may need to perform a
factory data reset on your device. Please note that this will reset your
device to its original state.

While your media content (photos, music, etc.) will not be deleted from
the SD card, applications and their related data will be uninstalled.

To perform a factory reset:

1) Go to Home > Menu > Settings > Privacy (or Phone storage; depends on
the device)
2) Press "Factory data reset"
3) Press "Reset phone"

After you perform the factory reset, make sure you sign into your device
with the same primary Google Account you were using before.

If you have any questions or concerns before performing the reset, or if
doing so does not resolve the issue, please let me know so I can continue
to investigate.

Best Regards,

Mine only shows one page of search results. Like 20 out of 4500

It's a known issue they say they're working on.

Wish they would add the feature to let you know what apps are optimized for tablets, and which work great on both, and which are phone only. I know the phone ones will work on tablets but don't always look so hot.
I would also like it if they started to scan the market and keep it safer as Amazon does with theirs.

Yep happens to me most of the time

From Google:

Some users have reported suddenly being asked to sign in to an @youtube account when trying to access Android Market. We're looking into the issue, but in the meantime, you can take the following steps as a temporary solution:
From your home screen, visit Menu > Settings > Accounts & sync, and you may see a @youtube account listed. Tap the account, then tap "Remove account" at the bottom of the screen. If you don't see an @youtube account listed, not a problem, you can still proceed with the other steps outlined below to resolve the issue.
Clear the cache and data of the Market app and the Download manager. Here's how:
Visit Menu > Settings > Applications > Manage applications
Tab over to "All"
Select the Market app, and then tap "Clear data" and "Clear cache"
Select the Download manager, and then tap "Clear data" and "Clear cache"
Temporarily uninstall updates to Android Market by following these steps:
From the home screen, go to Menu > Settings > Applications > Manage applications
Tab over to "All" (or, if your device is running Android 2.1 or below, press Menu > Filter > All)
Scroll down and select the Market app
Touch "Uninstall updates"
