Adobe Web UI

Sloppy page loadI have not spent a lot of time on the Adobe web site since the Adobe/Macromedia meld. I have to say – after just spending 10 minutes on the Adobe web site (buying Photoshop CS3), I am very disappointed with their layout and their implementation of the layout. There were numerous spots where the menus did not load for several seconds (longer than other web sites), text was cut off, and during page load – elements were just really ugly. Yes – this happens sometimes, but I expected a lot more from Adobe. On top of this, the font looks horrible and like something that would have been ok on Windows but not on a Mac and not from the type king Adobe. My Adobe experience was very disappointing.

An example of the cut off, ugly text in the store (look at “Sign In” and “Welcome”):
