What are your web design and development pet peeves?

By December 31, 2012

Follow me on:

There are a lot of things that designers and web developers do that can be annoying. Like inaccessible design just because the designer was too busy to add alt text to images or images that are so garish and blink so fast that I get a migraine just from visiting the site. One thing I think I hate the most these days are sites where the content is non-existant. In fact, one site I used to visit daily I now avoid when I see them in my feed—their content has become so focused on “sharing” that there's nothing to it, just a short, Twitter-esque comment and then a request for comments from readers. (Well, that and they've turned into a lets-bash-Apple site which gets boring.) What are your web pet peeves?

Some months ago, as a result of gathering some example material for a usability-related presentation, a classmate of mine stumbled upon one of the most surreal sites possible. Luckily it is still up, so I can show it to you. This is a link to the home page, which is not the scariest part – in order to get to it, you must click on the animated door at the bottom of the page and then the true psychedelic experience starts:

I have to warn you not to follow that link if you are prone to seizures. I hope you find it funny otherwise.

Alexander, that is just MEAN!!! ;-)

Wow, what a site. even the background flickers – and I love how it’s not even remotely seamless, so you can see all the tiles too.
