Submitter’s comments: I just stumbled on http://www.laeuft.de. Nice site, if it was a printed leaflet for a fashion label. Unfortunately, on the first glance it looks to be in Flash (which it isn’t, the truth is much more scary than that), and what looks first like Mystery Meat Navigation turns out not to be a usable navigation system at all. No, you do not get to the next page, as there are no real pages, just this images animation, and navigating with these “things”, you only see a part of the site, because some “content” is in between those stopping points.
Fortunately, they tell you on the first “page” how to see their entire site: You should just scroll down to see more and to get the images go forward. This could be a challenge when using a notebook or an mouse without a scroll wheel, for keyboard scrolling seems to be disabled, and there are neither scrollbars or other navigational elements. So I really had to plug in a scrollwheel mouse to get through. This nearly beats random mystery meat navigation, don’t you think?
Vincent Flanders’ comments: I agree. It’s pretty impressive. It’s a bit easier to use on a mobile device. You just swipe left or right. I can’t seem to find any internal links on the mobile or desktop. Is this a brochure?
