Mental Floss: Fun Random Facts and News

Mental Floss┬áis a website devoted to interesting, if very random facts. One such fact: Marie Curie’s notebooks are still radioactive. Cool stuff. I chose this website more for its content then its interesting design because that is still a very valid reason to make a website. Its also commonplace. There are many news websites out there, they are the reason newspapers are going out of business. So, while Mental Floss doesn’t have a responsive design it does do a good job giving you the news. The site uses HTML 5 and a lot of Javascript. jquery is common and the site uses some code from open source libraries. There are links everywhere: to other websites and to different parts on the Mental Floss website. While the site is not responsive, it does have a mobile version that is more like a news feed than a site.

  1. Katiemae,
    Nice new take on choosing a website. While design is important, content does matter and this site does have fun content. Although if the creator did modernize his site, he might receive some more viewers and could even make it an app for a smart phone!
