I know restaurant websites have been a topic here as they've been amidst any group of keen restaurant goers. And every time the topic comes up, two things are listed as hated features: music as default feature and overly busy flash design. What people want is information: contact info, up to date menus, and policies. And yet, many sites continue to opt for instant music that blares the moment you hit their page, and busy flash intros that most sensible people skip. I won't even begin to go into the busy design that hides rather than makes clear how to get the information we want.
Why? Can anyone tell me why restaurateurs continue to ignore the pleas of what seems to be a majority public?
