That, 1) websites that still use tables for design purposes, and 2) websites using frames.

What's wrong with JavaScript? As long as it's properly put to use (E.g. using AJAX for submittal purposes), I only see it as a fantastic ally.

I hate websites that looked like they walked straight out of the 80's, with squarish everythings and fixed width fonts. Bach.

I hate websites that put ads at the top banner, at the side, and in between every important thing that you look at. I also hate sites that have typos. In my opinion, Google is a very well designed site and I'm still not sick of looking at the same thing even though I've been using it for years.

For all the people that don't like ad's on websites:

Download this for Firefox

It will take all the ad's out of websites. Its nice when you go to an uploader site and not have tons and tons of ad's everywhere.

I dislike sites that do wierd {censored} and that have images that are pulled from 3 different websites. Or use scripts that mess with your browser, or sites that are on freaking slow servers... 30sec page loads mean your site has to much {censored} or your server is overloaded

Dice :rolleyes:

Award winners: I hate hate the ugly and juvenile page templates ebay gives you to select from as a seller - they are awful.

Same goes for the new themed personalized pages on Google. I hate Yahoo's smily fac e.
Same goes for most cellphone themes.

Overdesigned, childlike, ugly, unsophisticated...

Granted minimalism starts looking lame quick whenever it goes mass, but what surprises me is how much sloppy web design there is still- and on the most high profile accounts.

Comes down to the intangibles of artistry and taste. Actually glad the computer hasn't yet found a way to emulate these qualities.

Flash sites done poorly, take forever to load and have a slow framerate = ugly flash. Unfortunately, lots of even professional sites do this. I love it when they're quick and smooth.

I don't know if anyone have made the big mistake to open a piczo site, like this one. That's a user's nightmare: all those flashing stuff, that lame music... Take this one for example Horrible site

Why is the www blue and white? Every site is the same colors. They all look like myspace. I know it is hard to get a color scheme that isnt blue and white, but I am tired of blue and white.

Music that plays without the viewer taking action to make it happen
Flash ads with "do X to win the prize" and often accompanying irritating sound effects
Dodgy, M$ proprietary HTML
Sites which exist entirely within a single SWF, thus destroying any hope of using the navigation buttons in one's browser or scrollwheels
Sites which break scrollwheel functionality
Sites with masses of embedded content
Server-side scripted sites which aren't hosted on servers fast enough to generate the full page within a reasonable time
Sites on dodgy IIS servers which sometimes forget to actually interpret the script server-side application properly and which then spew out {censored} to the users' browser which promptly decides the only thing it can do is save the file to disk (eBay!)
Come to think of it: IIS...
Sites with no text which believe it's clever to implement an entire site by means of text rendered to images.. THe worst thing is they often don't even put the text in the ALT tag. MORONS.

Yes, I am a web designer.
