Mystery meat navigation

Mystery meat navigation is a form of web navigation user interface whereby the target of each link is not visible until the user points their cursor at it. Such interfaces lack a user-centered design, emphasizing aesthetic appearance, white space, and the concealment of relevant information over basic practicality and functionality. The term was coined in 1998 by Vincent Flanders, author and designer of the website Web Pages That Suck.
