“You quickly judge websites based on medium sized thumbnails. And then if you want to actually visit a website, it takes 3 or 4 clicks. It’s a user trap designed to keep you on CommandShift3, and it doesn’t focus attention on the websites is displays.

It’s fine for pictures of kittens or photos of sluts, but building websites is an art, and this kind of quick arbitrary judgement does not have a place in web design.”

Could not agree more, and it’s sad to see all the link love it has been getting.

But they admit up front that it’s “like Hot or Not for websites”. Surely Hot or Not fails to give the visitor ample information in which to determine the hotness of the person in the photo — but it doesn’t pretend to be anything else. Same can be said about CS3. It’s a terrible way of determining design value. But it is what it is. And kinda fun :)
