> (...) is at least beautiful as modern WebApps.

What? In my dictionary, screenshots of "modern webapps" appear when I search the definition of the word "ugly".

Would you consider the Stripe[0] dashboard or Figma[1] ugly? I'm not agreeing with the parent's statement, but whether or not a WebApp or Native App is ugly is impacted more by designers, not implementation.

Yes, they are the worst kind of site and they represent fairly everything that I dislike about the "modern" web. Superfluous animations, not clear where to click, and with an overall design that is so standard that is not evident whether it is a parody or not [0]. I pretty much prefer clean designs with clearly visible links, like wikipedia, or hackernews, or the recently discussed today sourcehut [1]
