    Web Design 101
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

    1. Make sure to use a development program that only targets the absolute latest browsers.

    2. Thoroughly test your web site on older browsers to make sure it's completely broken on anything but the latest versions.

    3. Make sure you use lots of Javascript for even the most basic features like displaying an image so that users can't turn Javascript off and so that it increases each page's loading time.

    4. If the site allows/requires a user to login, make sure you craft the login window out of pure Javascript so that the browser's password storage feature doesn't recognize it.

    5. If your site specializes in file downloads, craft your own download mechanism rather than relying on normal file transfer methods. For extra points, ensure that whatever method you use fails on really large files.

    6. If your site has a forum, don't use a familiar and trusted off-the-shelf forum program, create your own from scratch and don't follow any logical forum conventions as used on other sites, make it as confusing as possible to use.

    7. Make sure your web site is optimized for a 5" screen, so that it looks like crap when people access it with a traditional computer.

    8. Make your site either really crowded or really sparse. Either there should be so many options and links on the page that the user doesn't know what to click or there should be so few that the user will spend 20 minutes trying to figure out where you hid the information that they're looking for.

    9. Use lots of frames. There's nothing users like more than every page having the exact same URL so that they can't bookmark specific pages.

    10. If the site is going to be constantly updated, make sure to use infinite scroll. Users love having to scroll through 100+ screens of crap to get to the information they're looking for.

    11. Color choice is important! Always display images on a pure white background so that the glare makes the images look darker and harder to see. Text should always be pure white on a pure black background so that the user will see afterimages of it for a few minutes after staring at the text for a while.

    12. Always use Captchas. Google's ReCAPTCHA is a great choice since it only works on the latest browsers and users love clicking the squares in an image 3-4 times.

    Maybe that's how it should be, but that's not reality. In reality, many websites only work on the latest browsers. Even when the site doesn't do anything that older browsers can't handle, the program that they use to design the site will write HTML using tricks that break the site on older browsers.

    Even on this site, clicking to expand stories on the main page doesn't work in older browsers. Clicking to show hidden comments also doesn't work. It used to, but now it doesn't because something was changed that breaks those functions on older programs.
