    I'm envisioning lovely coffee "patterns" made by owners.

    I agree, I haven't used Framer since its first iteration but it resembles Flash a lot.

    I'm designer with a decent technical aptitude. From an interface perspective it totally makes sense to me and I don't think it would take me long to figure it out.

    If it scares any designers, there's always Principle (for Mac).

    You can't discount the NSFW content. The rawness of the site is part of what made it great.

    Booo. FFFFOUND was great. I remember discovering it in 2008.

    A friend of mine once said, "It's better than a [design] bookstore ...almost."

    End of an era.

    I used Harvest for time-tracking and invoicing when I was freelancing in 2016. I haven't tried other services, but Harvest was decent.

    Might be worth a look.

    No, not you. I'm saying the title of the article. ;-)

    All caps HATE and FAKE and an exclamation point in the title? That's how 13-year-olds text each other.

    It's ironic that the people giving criticism can't take criticism.

    Keep it professional.

    You're suggesting the current site is perfect, which is false. There are a lot of very intelligent people at Amazon, but other like big companies, it can take a lot of time an effort to do small changes.

    Like the saying goes, you can't turn around a big ship quickly.

    There are also cases where there are a lot of stakeholders at big companies, and ux & visual design get de-prioritized. Just look at Microsoft's failed efforts at smartphones and wearables. There's many brilliant people there, but it's a big ship and the best strategies don't always get implemented.
