There are a lot of web designs that the average user finds annoying, which is in the same category as this - 'I don't want a splash page, I don't want your artsy and convention-breaking layout, I don't want your app - I just want to find what I need without anything getting in my way.' It can be hard to find web pages that don't violate some useability principles that seem pretty obvious.

Maybe it's just cargo-cult programming.

Fixed elements on a web page are my biggest pet-peeve. Just eats away at the precious vertical space on my monitor.
