The Daily Sucker - Current examples of bad web design

The Daily Sucker

Sites featured in articles like Worst Websites of 2010 often are redesigned, which explains why some sites mentioned in my articles don't match their current look. The Daily Sucker features current examples of bad web design which haven't been fixed (yet).

If you see a site that you think sucks, email the URL to me. No personal pages (personal pages are supposed to reflect the individual's personality and artistic freedom) or web site designers (it would look like a conflict of interest), or others of their ilk.

If I think there's some merit to your selection, I may post it along with some commentary. If you know of a site that qualifies, let me know.

One big reason why Javascript sucks

December 16th, 2008 10:10 pm by Vincent Flanders

I know, I know I use Javascript. You have to if you want detailed analytics (or any kind of advanced features) but there are lots of reasons not to use JS. Almost every time there’s a security alert about an unpatched Internet Explorer vulnerability — and there’s a big one out now (with a patch due Wednesday) — Microsoft suggests you turn Javascript off.

Here’s a screen shot and I’ve highlighted the applicable parts.

Microsoft isn’t the only browser that has ever had JS problems and it isn’t the only problem with JS. Until recently, JS has been a drag on web site performance. It’s still a drag unless you place your JS correctly on the page or delay its delivery.
