Not even close. Arguably it's attractive, as long as you don't actually need
to use it or read anything on it. Pray your eyes are as good as a 15 year old
or you aren't using a high resolution device to access it if so.

It's terribly rude, apparently designed by people with giant displays and/or
perfect vision, for low resolution displays of 20 years ago, with no apparent
consideration given to users of high resolution displays, or those with less
than perfect eyesight.

resolution only 150% of "standard" 96. Note the note at the bottom of the
image about proper viewing.
