Worst Websites of 2010: Overview

some websites are car wrecks on the information highway

It was the best of times; it was the suckiest of times.

I'll probably use that phrase as the opening of my next book on bad web design. Another possible title is, "Car Wreck on the Information Highway."

Worst Websites of 2010

In 2010, there were a number of large and well-known websites who featured my kind of bad design. Sites like Yale School of Art, God Hates Fags, Got Milk? whitehouse.gov, and Abercrombie & Fitch.

Worst Websites of 2010 — User Interface / Navigation

In 2010, a number of websites seemed to focus on making their websites hard to navigate. The result: a lot of sucky User Interfaces. There were so many bad UIs, I had to create a separate grouping. Personally, I think the User Interface / Navigation examples are worse than the ones appearing in Worst Websites of 2010.
