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.

Harbor Freight Tools – An Example of Bad Web Design for April 15, 2013

The Daily Sucker

Submitter’s comments: Sure their audience are contractors and weekend-warriors looking for that one item that will turn their garage into next “Binford workshop of the week.”

And their prices for items such as angle grinders, ratcheting tie downs and pneumatic tires probably can’t be beat.

Still, you’d think a company with over 400 stores and 20 million loyal customers could do a bit better than posting to their homepage a regurgitation of the printed flyer that fills our mailbox (and later serves as a drop cloth for our paint).

Or at least leverage jQuery for a bit more than nagging users of IE 7 that their browser is as crufty as the home page currently displayed — like say collect analytics on which coupons catch the visitor’s attention?-)

Vincent Flanders’ comments: Gee. I thought Flyer websites were a thing of the past.
