What if web developers suddenly stopped caring about user-friendliness? The internet would become a cruel place. This idea has intrigued a few programmers so much that they have started competing on reddit, to try and figure out who can come up with the meanest torture device.

Take the various forms we fill out, for example. We input our names, addresses, and phone numbers, submit the data and instantly move on with our order. Someone wrote quite a few code lines to make this experience as seamless as possible, and believe it or not, they didn't have to. Scroll down to check out the time-consuming monsters they could've created instead and upvote your favorites.
