Mashable has listed 12 things we find all too often on various websites that should be retired because they are often annoying and more often keep us from finding what we went to that site to find.
Here are a few I totally agree should be eliminated and let's just say, news websites are the worst offenders.
1. Too much stuff on the home page. Way too much vying for your attention to the point you don't even care to keep looking. Check out KSDK and other local news sites. My gosh there is way too much going on and the mobile sites are even worse. KMOX's site is disorienting, too much movement, too much irrelevant stuff going on.
2. Auto play videos. These are most annoying. Go to a site and all of a sudden loud music or a loud voice comes out of no where and a video you don't want to see begins.
3. Automated Popups. Super annoying and news sites are most likely to have these constant popups.
There are 9 more, but these are the ones which I'd like to see gone.
