Best-Designed Sites on the Web by Popular Vote

CommandShift3 is like Hot or Not. Except, instead of clicking on hot babes, you click on hot websites. It's actually a pretty nice way to check out good design on the web.

It's also the key combo to do a screenshot on a mac.

Um, I mean Kottke. I also love the fact the MeFi beats AskMe. Go blue!

"Hot babes," "hot websites," and then the "screenshot on a mac" remark... where's the NSFW tag?

Yes, the blue of MeFi is much better design than the green of AskMe.

The "worst ever" weren't good, but they weren't the worst ever either.

Mefi would score even higher if it were black text on white. You know it would.

Just like hot or not, this equates web design with visual design, but anyone who's had to actually use a website (or a person) knows that looking pretty is about 15% of what makes it good.

I keep picking the losers, so I should probably stop playing.

Who is submitting these sites? Several of the worst are parked domain pages -- one of the worst is just a text rendering of 43 Folders' RSS feed.

Anyone can submit them.

There were a few times (Craigslist) where people seem to ignore the complexity of the information being displayed and just chose the prettier picture.

These bastards ruined my chance at a perfect score.

Right, it's possible to determine the quality of a site's design by looking at a screenshot of its homepage. Riiiiight.

Sounds more like "web pages that suck" only without any of the things that make me want to go look at web pages that suck.
