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

Submitters’ comments: Unfortunately this is actually my bank’s website. I hated their previous website, but a few months ago they launched this new redesign and it’s worse than their previous site. I get the creeps every time I have to enter my online banking info.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: If you get creeped out by the new site, I don’t even want to know what your reaction was to the previous monstrosity from October 2015. I don’t know if they’re using Flash, but it’s worth checking out for the talking head. The new site is 100% better than the old one, but there are some interesting page load problems. WebPageTest has some interesting results. Go to their site with a regular browser, the site gets an “A” for First Byte Time, but the page load time takes 6.812 seconds; however it gets an F on mobile, but its load time is only 3.499 seconds. Oh, upon initial inspection the mobile site looks fine.

Aesthetically, it’s challenged. Aesthetically challenged. What galls me is when I “shrink” my window to a width of 980px, the navigation disappears as well as the “Breaking News.” I don’t care about the Breaking News. The navigation – that’s a different issue.
