[thelist] What makes a good web site?

Yea I agree,

To be honest, in my humble opinion, I think this is quite a void topic of
discussion. What makes a good website depends on its requirements and if it
fullfills them efficiently... 

Especially these days, and as I get dragged into more and more flash
development, I see websites as pieces of software almost (unless it's a
brochure-ware site). With this in mind, the subject question is almost like
'what makes a good piece of software', and well, one that works, efficiently
and quickly whilst remaining intuitive (and logical) from a user

I guess more of a question is which technologies should you use to achieve a
certain goal, or which ones are better suited towards fulfilling a certain
requirement. Or what new cornerstones in the way we digest websites we will
encounter in the future (mobile browsing etc...).. You could also ask an
alternative question, what makes a good interactive website, or what makes a
good e-commerce website.

Hope these ramblings are of some use...
