That is so incredibly hideous and tacky! I can’t believe that a company would still think the whole NKOTB-era style is cool!

reminds me of those aero trains

while aol churns out pretty disgusting work. altho it’s worth pointing out the other browsers are much better….they all (moz/nn/ie/opera) seem to have that vernacular in-your-face look. Safari seems like it’s taking things in a better direction (hope we see more movement thataway!).

Person A: We’ve had the same interface for several years now. I think we need a change.
Person B: Any suggestions?
Person A: All I can think of is this bucket filled with vomit and cotton candy. Oh, and lots and lots of shading.
Person B: You’re the boss!
