I really hate the brain damage going on with user interfaces on the web these days.  My bank decided to make their online banking beautiful but absolutely useless.   You get 10 transactions per page and each transaction takes up an inch of vertical screen space.   This is so that the date can take up three lines instead of one.  Because one flat line would be ugly.  Never mind the utility. People don't go to their bank's website for that.  Next time I go there I expect to see cute cat photos instead of bank transactions. Lets face it transactions are seldom pretty and most of them just remind you that you've lost money.  Lets just give up on making them pretty and show cute kitten photos instead.  Lets turn banking around and remove all the horrible seriousness of utility.
