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.

The Daily Sucker - an example of bad web design

Submitter’s comments: Mystery Meat Navigation (MMN) gone mad. Took me about 5 minutes to find where this newly named financial service is located. Turns out it is in Toronto. You would think that, with all their money, they could do better. Less Flash and more information please.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: It seems like a bad idea for a financial company to use hidden navigation. I might ask myself, “What else are they hiding?” Probably nothing. Still, you don’t want any design element that gets in the way of the user. This gets in the way. What also gets in the way is all the cutesy HTML5+CSS3+JS crap. It’s not helping. In fact, it’s giving you insanely low scores on Google’s PageSpeed: 54 for mobile and 51 for desktop. Even this POS website scores 84 for mobile and 95 for desktop.
