I find it very useful when I need to adjust / modify content from a tablet or a phone. So I don't think it's the worst improvement ever...
As for a complaint about the Comments section being farther down. The 'End' key on the keyboard brings you at the end of the page, so even an article with 3000+ words get 'scrolled' instantly to the Comments section.
On Apple :
-Full Keyboard : End key is next to Del
-Laptop Keyboard / Wireless Keyboard : Fn + RightArrow does same as End
On PC :
-Full Keyboard : Next to Del (End Key)
-Laptop w/ numPad : Top corner of number pad is End key
-Laptop w/o numPad : AltCar + right arrow should work
Hope this will help a couple of you, for the shortcuts on PC, I may be wrong for some laptops since they are not built the same way.
Have a nice evening all,
