There are many people with nothing better to do than creating useless websites. Or spend their time on useless websites. If you've been wondering which are the most useless websites of the Internet, then you are browsing the right article. Below we will see ten of them, in an attempt to find out why would someone create these websites, which is a waste of time for anyone involved.
We have already seen interesting websites...
...and fun and relaxing sites.
In this guide, we will waste some of our precious time on completely useless websites.

Why bother with useless websites?
Although it may sound strange, millions of useless websites have absolutely no reason to exist. These websites have no purpose, and they don't even help us to have some fun. They are useless in every possible way.
And we are not talking about Microsoft's support page, or something similar.
At this point you may wonder, why would we want to see some websites with no meaning at all? Well, that's a good question.
First of all, curiosity is an important part of the human condition. Even if I told you that a website is completely useless, you would want to see for yourselves, wouldn't you?
Moreover, sometimes during our day, we want to sit for a while without doing anything useful. In other words, we are bored, especially when the temperature is close to 104°F (40°C). Inside the house. Even if you turn on the air-conditioning!
The Useless Web
After a lot of research on the subject, we wanted to find the most useless website of all. We thought it thoroughly, and we finally found the winner.
Which website is more useless, than the site that redirects you to other useless websites? It sounds like a riddle, and the answer is none.
Therefore, the first prize goes to The Useless Web, a simple website that has only one purpose: To take you to a random useless website.
All you have to do is click on the "Please" button.
If by any chance it redirected you to Staggering Beauty, as it did in our case, try to resist the temptation of moving your cursor too fast. Except if you don't mind a possible heart attack, an epileptic seizure, or both. You've been warned.
Falling Falling is exactly what the name suggests. There are colorful layers that keep falling, and falling, and falling... endlessly. This page is a typical example of useless websites with no particular purpose or cause.
The sound effects that remind us of the falling effect on cartoons don't help to make the site more useful or interesting.
Did you ever want to see a tree to grow in front of your eyes, again and again? Neither did we. That is why we keep wondering why this website exists.
Taghua is about a sakura tree that grows whenever we press the Reset button.
Well, at least every time the tree is different than before. That's something, right?
Most of you may be familiar with the RGB color model, which is very useful in computer graphics.
Although, we can't say the same for RRRGGGBBB.
If you hover your mouse on one of the RGB letters of this page, the background color changes and a computer generated voice starts singing "rrrrr," "ggggg," "bbbbb" respectively. No comment on this one
That's the finger
Since we are talking about useless interactive websites, we can't leave this one out. "That's the finger" is a site with a hand in the middle. As you may have already guessed, we can raise a particular finger by moving the cursor up.
The scary fact is that "The finger" and pretty much most of the useless websites we mentioned, has gathered a lot of Likes in Facebook.
We guess that the creator signed up on Facebook with 15.000 different accounts to Like himself or 14.999 people have a very distorting idea about Likes.
Now here's a challenge: Can you find the end of this horse's legs?
We couldn't. The logical conclusion is that the horse is endless for real after we spent a good amount of valuable time on scrolling down.
On the same wavelength, there is Le Duchamp, a wheel that you may spin endlessly for as much as you want, without any purpose at all.
How comes that when we talk about useless stuff, we end up on toilet paper? It makes you wonder.
Anyway, Paper Toilet has nothing to do with toilet paper; it has an image in the center featuring a lamp.
Tell me that you didn't buy that. Sorry, but I couldn't resist. Of course, it has to do with toilet paper!
There's a toilet paper right in the middle.
Now, is it soft? How many layers does it have? We can't tell, and unfortunately, there is no further info on the website. To find out, we tried to unroll the toilet paper.
We can't tell you what we found at the end of it. We don't want to deprive you of this experience, so you'll have to do it by yourselves.
Koalas to the Max
Ok, we fount this website rather interesting and probably smart. Maybe we saw many useless websites today, or maybe it is smart for real.
Whatever the case, Koalas to the Max, is a web page with a large gray circle in the middle.
If we hover our mouse on the circle, it collapses and reveals four more rings, and it keeps going.
Once we've finished with collapsing all circles, we can see that they form a picture in the background. We won't show you the picture because we want you to try this on your own. Plus, we hate spoilers.
ClickClickClick.Click is all about clicks and your mouse's movement in general. This site records every move you do and lets you know by writing it down.
We could see some usefulness in this website, in a way that it helps us understand what kind of information we give when we visit any page on the Internet.
Some information may be useless, as the resizing of our windows. On the other hand, some information may be useful to advertising companies, such as how long it took us to click the big button in the middle, and so on.
