THIS is real browsing



  • Not very accessible for people with motion sickness.

    (move your mouse)



  • The photos section with the left/right scroll buttons... in a scolling window is TRWTF



  • I miss the "This webpage is designed and optimzed for MS Internet Explorer 4.0, Adobe Flash Player and a display resolution of 3840 x 3072 pixel." note.



  • Truly nauseating.  Amazing.



  • YOW!



  • Rapid access

    The "rapid access" is quite telling...why would you need that if your site were accessible to begin with?



  • sigh another brilliant attempt at a new UI... We should charge 3000 per attempt, that way all the idiots will be discouraged.



  • This is essentially how Google Maps works.  All content is accessed through a view port and scrolling/dragging replaces hyperlinks.

    Except the click-and-drag metaphor is a lot more intuitive for maps than it is for a regular website.

    Also, Google uses it in a sane way and fetches content only if it's near the viewport. Whereas this ... thing ... preloads the whole huge page,leaving the user staring at an unnerving loading animation for an unnecessary period of time.



  • Meh.  This is just a brochure-ware site, right?  Not a web app?

    The whole point of these things is to be flashy.  It got your attention.  You shared the link.  It worked.  The site did exactly what it was supposed to.

     

    Yeah, in general, this is a terrible, terrible idea.  But for brochure-ware, it gets a pass
     



  • eeww!

    Now how do I get all that vomit out of my keyboard!

    But just imagine, if you will, what would happen if Google merged the web page data it collects with Maps.  Search the web, and view the results on a map.  Not just a "store locator" mechanism, but a whole new interface for searching and viewing the web!  Ok, dumb idea...

    I'd have to disagree. It's waaaaaaaay too large. That site resembles brochure-ware as much as a folding road map resembles a paper brochure.

    Google Maps is not controlled in the same way as this website.

    When all you have is a hammer, all problems start looking like your fingers.

    LMAO!

    That site, too ... Old idea (think game playfield scrolling), ghastly implementation.
