And here I thought we were in for a real Gary rant.

It is pretty hideous.

I'm too tired to rant - been doing stupid research on sites like this all day. :rolleyes:

*looks for vodka and Xanax*

I suppose the idea in itself, a hierarchical tree of subjects isn't too bad, but the execution isn't very good, first of all because of the strange locations of the root and second level views and second because it's not done in a consistent manner. One link in the second level view brought me out the frames without any warning. It's not very pretty either. :eek:

Javadocs are built up in the same way. It doesn't look very pretty there either, but for javadocs case it serves a purpose and it's a lot easier to navigate and use with the frames than without.

Hey!

Let's not be so rough on this page.

I'm sure the designer put in at least 2 sessions a week down at the learning annex to get their web design skills. Let's show some respect for the professionals out there making a living :p

Hideous, but I'm not tearing out my hair.

Now if it had background music, falling snowflakes, random flash animations, horizontal scrolling, yellow font on a white background...

it isn't that bad, it could have sound, flash, gif, unsized images and javascript popups plus an even worse color scheme and different font sizes and styles. The layout yes is horrible and should be three column but honestly it isn't the worst ive seen. however to answer the original question, yes annoying. :eek:

Someone needs to send them a link to csszengarden.com for some formatting tips. I just discovered this site and wow is it cool.

This one, though, is hideous and confusing.
