It pains me to see potentially high-profile websites (or sites that aspire to be high-profile) that suffer from really bad web design. Take a look at this page to get an example of what I mean. The page is only one among millions, but it's a relevant reminder, to me at least, that good web design should be appreciated whenever encountered — it really is a rare thing. It's just a shame it has to be that way.

It is slightly better than a lot of sales pages in that if you click the product you can see a 20% larger version... I really hate when it just shows the same jpeg-artifact-covered thumbnail.

I'm always frustrated by businesses who think that everything is about doing well in the search engines, and who don't consider that an ugly site is not going to get them very far when someone finds it.

Unfortunately, this seems to be increasingly true - with accessibility and w3c standards going out the window on the whim of an SEO.

(I see this post that I've stumbled on is rather old, but I believe still very much the case!)

I personally like your post, you have shared good things. i am also presented a most effective web page in all bing users, if your web browser is working very slow then use this platform and delete history, after this process your browser is running very fast and secure.
