And finally… The useless web

And finally… The useless web

Not that we are deliberately trying to distract you from your work but stumbling across this new site… somehow… we also thought it was one to share.

If you’ve trawled through your social feeds, devoured everything the Daily Mail side bar has to offer, but are still in need of some distraction, the useless web could be the best next internet pit stop for you. Contrary to its namesake, the useless web is useful if you’ve reached peak boredom levels and have a lot of time to kill.

The way it works is super simple, head to the website, click on the big “please” button and you’ll be directed to a separate obscure website that you most likely will never have previously come across, and certainly never would have needed to. Alan Partridge just rocking out, a seemingly never-ending creation of circles to reveal a cute picture beneath, or a shining mango – yes, literally just a mango surrounded by sun rays.

It definitely doesn’t offer a cutting edge user experience (you cannot skip from one site to another but have to go back to the original page to be re-directed), but it does deliver on what it sets out to do – helping you discover the wonderful and bizarre pages of the internet.
