Will the now unpopular web design of the 2000s or otherwise return one day?

I think about this frequently especially with the new decade and all
modern flat design is :sleeping:
Of course the internet will never be “decentralized” again but at least the aesthetic could return
i dont think it will
what do you think

(first post, be nice :slight_smile: )


God hear you. I am literally fed up with today’s web. I felt so much more pleasure navigating in dial-up 56k through those pages full of gifs and html than the bloated crap it became.

Check out Neocities! It’s a site made as like, a callback to Geocities, and there’s a lot of early 2000s designs going on there by other early net enthusiasts.

I’ll take any aesthetic if it involves removing the “web notifications”, “sign up for our newsletter”, “authorize your location permission”, “click here for more” (of the last 2 lines of the article), “accept cookies”, “like us on facebook”, “download our app to read the full article”, “do you want to do a survey”, et al. popups that one encounters on a daily basis.

Thankfully, due to browser extensions, I don’t have to see these as much :stuck_out_tongue:


Disable your adblock!!!

i cant its on my android hosts file and i dont have root

i wish it would come back, the bloated HTML5 pages take too much resources and crap(e.g heavy javascript) compared to HTML 4.01 :stuck_out_tongue:

I think it’s almost impossible. It would be like stop using cars and prefer horses :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

ahem cars are a reason for global warming so this is a good thing

the world will eventually end anyways, damage has been already done. Keep in mind cars aren’t the only reason of global warming! =P

i know that. deforestation, fossil fuels, cow methane, and lotsa others.

Interesting point… but i dont think its a comparable situation… design choices change all the time with trends :stuck_out_tongue:
