Have you ever found something really badly designed? Something which obscurity of its functions makes it hard to understand its use? Something almost unusable to a point it would drive you mad using it too often? Perhaps, a fool's design? Then you have come to the right place. Post your findings here and help making the world a saner place.

Scrollbars/sliders of some software I am developing. I intentionally increased contrast to get stuff more visible, size I cannot really do anything about unless I radically alter the way I render things...

I, user.

A bit off-topic but your software reminds me of the old times. You know, back when we all had dreams. When computers and games where fun. :D

In FireFox, with some simple CSS lines in the user profilechromeuserchrome.css,

Code: Select all

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

/* Tabs: no icons */
.tabbrowser-tabs .tab-icon-image { display: none !important; }
.tab-text { margin-left:4px !important; }

I can adjust the tab caption text to my liking. To my liking. TO MY LIKING. TO MY LIKING. TO MY LIKING.

...but those motherfuckers at Microsoft cannot grasp the simple concept of customization. They don't even want to allow you to alter the scrollbar colors. WHAT PART OF "THEY ARE FUCKING INVISIBLE!" DON'T THEY UNDERSTAND? I can tolerate those disgusting scrollbars for a maximum of 4 seconds before my blood pressure raises to unhealthy levels.

Fuck you Microsoft.

If you thought the old Spotify scrollbars were lacking contrast and were way too small:
