Started in the Spring of 2001 JoeAnt is directory of quality sites for Internet users. Their goal is to list the best sites for a wide variety of topics giving their users the most relevant results for their searches.
JoeAnt has a very beautiful design that was custom coded. The logo features a O from JOANT with a magnifying glass which is representive of the feel of their Web directory. The logo is large on the homepage but gets smaller as one browses the sub-categories of the directory. The design is simple and clean with a blue and light pink color scheme.
JoeAnt frequently updates links in their directory so that all links are current. Clearly with over 15,000 links in their directory this is a big job.
