This site seems pretty cool, but once you start navigating through it, you quickly realize you're lost. Because of how this site is laid out, the header tends to change colors.
The last time I visited the PCWorld site was a few years ago, but I don't recall it being this poorly designed back then. The random full screen ads are the worst. If you're looking to drive away customers, you nailed it.
09. My Coke Rewards
This site wouldn't be so bad if it didn't use a mobile design for its desktop version too. While it's great to support the mobile community, I think you took it a little too far.
Wow! This is still a thing? Who knew? My biggest gripe with myspace is their search feature. I've honestly never seen anything like this before. It felt out of place and way over-the-top.
11. Satan's Rapture
Now we're talking real doom. In fact, it's so 'doomey' there's even a disclaimer on the site: "WARNING: THIS SITE MAY CONTAIN MATERIAL THAT SOME CONSIDER OFFENSIVE OR DISTURBING. PARENTAL GUIDANCE IS SUGGESTED." I'm not entirely sure if they were referring to the content or the web design.
12. BrandsMart USA
An interesting thing happened when I visited this site. I went back in time. If I were to take a guess, I'd say I landed somewhere around the early '90s. The funny thing is one of the first images this site displayed had to do with Back to the Future. Honestly, that made me laugh out loud.
13. Cartoon Network
I love Cartoon Network – it has some funny shows – but this website is terrible. The drop-down navigation menu makes me dizzy. When you're designing a site, please take us old folks into consideration. We can't handle all the bouncing.
14. Bo'ness Motor Museum
Again with the flashback to the yesteryears. Maybe they did this on purpose; you know... it being a museum and all. But my goodness, that header font. Really? Ouch!
15. Internet Archive
The first thing I noticed about this site was its use of a floppy disk in the menu bar. When was the last time you saw a floppy disk? This just screams, "Hey, I'm outdated and haven't caught up with the times." Now, where's my soldering gun so I can burn a hole in this floppy and double its capacity?
16. Scottish Museums
This site wouldn't be too bad except for the broken links. Rule number one, test things and make sure they work. And if they don't, you may want to consider fixing them. Just sayin'.
