QotD: Ugly

Question: What's the ugliest site you still visit regularly?

My Answer: I don't visit a whole lot of ugly sites. The truly ugly ones are usually hidden behind an RSS feed, like this one. 🙂 Perhaps the ugliest site I visit regularly (because its RSS feed has only headlines when I last checked) is xlr8yourmac.com. I have PulpFiction set to show the article in the preview pane instead of the feed content, so I see the site daily.

  1. Metalink. You have to have an account to see it, but trust me, it's ugly. With terrible navigation and poor performance. It also happens to be Oracle's on-line knowledge base and support site. Go Figure.

  2. Aw hell, this one is easy: Slashdot!

  3. That's easy: Slashdot!

  4. Slashdot is pretty close. I have my /. account set for minimal graphics and no sidebars. As such it looks a lot like the web in 1994.

    I'd have to say the drudgereport.com site. They get an obscene number of hits per day just for presenting the latest "dirt" - some true, some a little less filtered and verified.

    It does make you start to think that content comes first, then presentation -- considering the number of eyeballs that see slashdot, metadot, and drudge per day...
