Websites are as unique as people. There are beautifully designed websites that could be considered fine art. And because the universe is all about balance, there are also websites that are headache-inducing, badly organized, and just plain ugly.
We went in search of the 5 worst websites of all time to bring you this post, and we were pretty pleased with–or, horrified–by what we saw. We found these websites over at DataDial.
5 Worst Websites of All Time
This is quite possibly the absolute worst website on this list.
It’s got all the elements we look for in a truly bad website:
- A basic marquee
- Outer space tiled background
- Strange background music by the website creator
- and of course–Comic Sans
If you miss the websites of the 1990s, this one is great. Featuring old school calendars, no images, and this:
“A family FABRIC company not just a family business but an i-family business like i-pod, now established 31 years 21st February 1985 – 2016.”
We don’t really know what else to say about this outdated fabric website–it’s one of those things you’ll have to see for yourself.
This website is not easy on the eyes. There are probably 1,000 product photos on their homepage alone.
Navigation is a mess, but the biggest problem really is that you just can’t see anything with so many photos in the way. It’s really distracting.
This is a great example of a bad website.
A rainbow flapping continuously across the page makes you feel kind of like you’re rocking in a small boat out on the ocean. Colors are moving. You are moving. Everything is moving. It’s not a good feeling. This website looks like the 1990s homepage, and not in a fuzzy, warm, nostalgic way. What were they thinking?
If bright, blinking lights, neon colors, and distractions are what you’re looking for, this is the place to find it.
It’s hard to imagine that this website like this could ever be designed with the intention of bringing in lots of traffic, but if you look at it long enough, it’s oddly hypnotic. Don’t tell anyone we said that, because this website is one of the worst websites of all time.
