Drunk User Testing

Simulate the experience of being drunk while surfing

The Drunk User Testing page lets you drag a little java button to your browser to experience drunk surfing on the site of your choice. The project was created by @rynclsnr.

You go home to celebrate the successful launch of your new project; one drink leads to two, and two leads to three. You sit down on the couch, pop open a browser, and navigate to your live website to take in your success.

Then it hits you -- you can't read the text. You're one-eyeing the login screen to counteract the weird spinning effect on the page that was not definitely not present an hour ago. You've spent so much time architecting something usable for everyone that you forgot to cater to the lowest common denominator -- the true test of user experience -- the user when they're drunk.
