Usability at its Worst

British Telecom starts a full scale approach to ruin the image of Flash. Their new 1,000,000 Pound online museum Connected Earth is a great example on how not to do it. It starts with a quirky browser detection, uses an innovative "mystery dot" navigation where you have to hit a microscopic hit-area and look somewhere else for the link title and cumulates in slow-loading pages that feature "exiting" content.

It is especially nice to compare the marketing blahblah with reality.

The site does not work for me:

Site error

Sorry, the page you were looking for could not be found.

Also, it thinks I am on a 56k instead of my 10mbit connection.
