Over the past couple of decades, the technology industry has seen a revolutionary growth. Mobile phones, computers and a stable internet connection have now become a prerequisite for the average human.
Today, in case we are stuck in the middle of a computer error or need guidance to a daily life problem, the internet is where we first go to find assistance. However, despite the help it provides, there are various pointless websites which exist over the internet.
Currently, there are various websites which offer web domains for anyone to buy. Once you buy a particular domain name, the interface of the website completely depends on how you code it. You could actually code it with a blue screen of death (BSOD) and upload it over the internet for the world to view. This is the root cause of the hefty amount of pointless domains hovering over the internet. Well, we have extracted out a list of the most useless & pointless websites on the internet. So, here it goes.
Most Useless Websites 2017 Worth Visiting!
- I Look Like Barack Obama
Founded by a weird real life misconception, I Look Like Barack Obama is exactly what its domain name says. The website is about a man called Trevor who thinks that he looks like the ex president of the United State of America, Barack Obama.
He admits that people walking on the streets have actually stopped him mid way to tell him about how similar the details of his face are to Barack Obama. However, the irony does not end yet. What makes this website pointless is the fact that if you look closely, the man behind the idea of the website has close to no resemblance to Barack Obama.

- Sometimes Red Sometimes Blue
Sometimes Red Sometimes Blue is a pointless randomizer website. Here, whenever you open the website, it on its backend rolls a dice and displays either a completely blue colored webpage or a completely red one.
The color displayed on one’s webpage is completely randomized by the coding of the website and cannot be altered by the viewer. The only actual purpose of the website could be if you want to toss for a bet and have no coins available. Other than that, the website is simply useless.

- Is It Christmas?
“Is It Christmas?” sticks to its guns as it offers the answer to the query asked on its domain name. If you visit the website on any day other than 25th December, the website will display a text saying “No”. On the other hand, if you visit the website on the 25th of December, it displays images related to the Christmas festival and states that the day of Christmas is indeed today.
Although the website answers a question important to many, it is very unlikely that one would need to visit a website everyday to know whether it is the Christmas day or not. Even on the day of Christmas, one could look at their device’s calendar or ask the people nearby instead of having to visit this website. Therefore, “Is It Christmas?” is indeed useless on the internet.

- Chicken On A Raft
Not to our surprise, Chicken On A Raft is a website about a .PNG image of a chicken who on the homepage of the website is standing on a raft. The purpose of the website is to click on the chicken whereupon the Chicken On A Raft theme song starts playing and the website records the amount of time the viewer has been listening to the track. The longer you stay on the website after clicking on the chicken, the better time score you will have.
This could seem something one could do while fighting boredom. However, the website does not have a leader board of any kind so your best shot at competing here is to tell your friends about this pointless website and having them play with you.

- Falling Falling
Falling Falling is another useless website which follows an endless loop where certain layers of colors constantly fall down but never reach the ground. Although the website seems kind of interesting when you think about it, you do get bored after a minute or two at most. After a while, you are either waiting for something new to happen on the website or close it down due to frustration.

- A Passive Aggressive Password Machine
Similar to its name, A Passive Aggressive Password Machine is about a bot who asks you questions which you have to answer as a context of a password. The questions are usually about your family members helping you out to set up your password and you have to write down what they’d suggest according to you.
What makes the website useless however is the fact that whatever the user inputs, the website displays it as a weak password. You could actually input 50 characters and the website would still not appreciate the strength of the text you entered.

- I Am Awesome
I Am Awesome is a weird website which could actually work as a mood refresher to some but is pointless at the same time. Here, once you visit the website, it shows you a completely white background with a simple text saying “it’s true”. People who are not feeling too good could actually visit the website to ride the rollercoaster of realization for a while. However, to any human with a normal mental state, the website is purely useless and would be instantly closed by them.
