Whole lotta labia.
Here's a question for you guys, people who are into every corner of the intertubes - As far as look/feel/friendliness/etc, what are your favorite sites? What do you like about them?

Sites that suck less:

Simple, elegant. Accessible, do not waste high value parts of the screen with useless things (logos). Links and navigation are clear and consistent. Degrade gracefully, e.g. turn off flash and javascript there should still be something readable.

I always thought this site http://www.sparkpeople.com did a good job putting a lot of stuff on the page without it being overwhelming.

The design of David Wong's site for his on-line horror novel http://www.johndiesattheend.com does a good job of adding to the dread of his narrative.

I like the Smart Bitches site less since their makeover. Before, there were problems with text/page color, but now the sidebar has taken over half the page and there's too much animation. Too many squiggly fonts, too. Basically I like sites with very clean, specific, clearly-labeled organization. Colors and graphics are fine, but not too many or too busy. Preferably as little Flash, Java, etc as possible. Intro animation pages make me want to kill people. Rotten Tomatoes is pretty good at organizing huge amounts of stuff into something that doesn't make your brain hurt or your computer crash.

a way to not run a site well: tribe.net, under constat repair and upgrade - I think they didn't create the site to handle the popularity of it.

There is a blog that I enjoy reading, but it has a lot of pictures that need to load, during the loading process the background is one shade darker than the writing....and if it is taking a long time to load, I can't read anything...it drives me slightly insane.

NFL.com always blows me away. It's so preposterously fast, thanks to the magic of Akimai. But that's the performance geek in me talking, their content is kinda crap, grossly busy and cluttered.

I'm fond of provantage.com for finding what I want to buy. Just nice navigation/drill down.

For content, no, they all suck. :)

Well, go look at smugmug.com. It's a little crowded with the ads, but not bad. It's pretty clean, uses decently easy to read fonts, doesn't try to put to much info on one page, keeps the message simple and has a nice big green "Try it" button. Pretty easy to figure out what to do.
Then there's nomnomnom.com........
