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: After looking at this site, I don’t feel like I would want to have orthopedic surgery at this facility. Personally I would suggest a clean minimalist design, and not use the animated the-dye thing going on in the header.
And for a tour of an operating room, I can’t open this in Safari, this should work across all browsers.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: Looks to me like the patient is suffering from early 2000-style web design. Hire two designers and call me in the morning. Actually, the home page I checked Last-Modified date for the home page and discovered it was November 12, 2009. The Home Page!!!!

Flash is used for the header and, of course as we all know, Flash doesn’t show up on mobile. The virtual tours are a mess. They work on some systems and not others. Hey guys! There have been a lot of improvements in web design since 2009.
