All show and no go websites.
Websites made with Wordpress. The source is mostly terrible.
What really drives me crazy is not some annoying “feature” that is a product of people who don’t know usability, programming, web trends.
This because new people on internet may like what old internet users (as many of us) liked in the past when they first got to the internet. Like awesome gifs on flashy pages. Well I like them at the time
I know too much about internet to not forget new creators who enter this world and think they found some awesome tricks and scripts and whatever the rest of us think is “old” and out of trend.
What really drives me crazy is when top internet developers decides, on purpose, to ruin websites experience because they have some evil plan to force upon their users.
Like Google and Youtube.
Google have top developers, usability specialists, the best of the best and what they do?
They sit at a table and they decides to create something that is against any design honesty principle. They don’t care about the user and how easy his experience needs to be. They build something to force and trick that user in doing something he doesn’t want to do.
Worst thing ever: background music…
I hate big ads and pop-up windows.
The affiliate focused buttons and irrelevant advertisements definitely turns off. Especially when these elements placed in robotic manner, near important buttons!
For example, someone clicks the “Get Help” button and then realizes its not really a “Get Help” button and then with frustration, rates you 1 star!
^ Especially when it’s Dreamhost
OK here it is. I really hate responsive junk. Websites were not meant to be seen on an iPhone or a Blackberry. When i view a site i want to see it on a full screen full size browser so you get the feel and the full spectrum of the site.
I think this mobile thing is gone too far. All templates look the same and function the same because everyone is in the responsive craze.
Also some sites say they are 100 % responsive but when resizing the browser they do not resize properly. Cheers
