There was a lot of brilliant, groundbreaking innovation to emerge on the Web in the '00s. There was also a lot that, well, wasn't. And to give those digital train wrecks their proper place in the sun, we present to you the 10 most annoying things that the Web puked up in the past decade.
CNET trawled through 10 years' worth of irritating memes, played-out YouTube videos, and nefarious business models to dig up our final list. We tragically were forced to omit some of the most irritating things to ever hit the Internet because of the fact that they were already around before the "naughties" started: the "Dancing Baby," International Talk Like A Pirate Day, blinking text, sing-along electronic greeting cards, Hampsterdance.com, chain letters, and animated cursors come to mind.
Play them off, Keyboard Cat...and then get into your Honorable Mention spot.
