You can tell when people are having to come up with new concepts for domain name when something as cool as this pop's up. 'CommandShift3'. Although there tag line, 'CommandShift3 is like Hot or Not' then 'Instead on clicking on hot babes, you click on hot websites' which really leaves you with no doubt as to what lies in store for you.

Clearly there is life yet in conjuring up unique URL's that are not just utterly trash. As you can tell, I really like this brand name.

Thanks to Jonathon Snook for bringing this to my attention. Great stuff.

So, the site. It's simplicity at it's best. Ultimately I cannot waffle too much about CommandShift3 as there is really not much to say as it just covers one core concept, selecting sites that rock your boat so to speak.

After landing on this page a whilst back I ended up leaving it some 30 minutes later, achieving nothing more than choosing what are cool and what are sub cool websites and placing my vote.

CommandShift3 is great fun and often leaves you wondering if your own sense of design is lacking in some key area.

It's a brilliant way to showcase some of the best sites currently out there and is certainly one of the top Web2.0 sites I have seen in terms of content.

It can also leave you quite deflated as looking back at your own creation can leave you with somewhat of a sinking feeling, especially if you are like me.

The process is simplicity.

Two site are shown side-by-side, (see above) and you simply choose which one you prefer. The fun part is then once you have made your choice, you are told the percentage of people who agreed with you or, erm, not.

Classing you as a looser or winner depending what you voted for. Great fun and quite addictive.

As I said, it throws up some surprising results, not all of them will leave you thinking, "what on earth?!!?''.

Definitely worth a look and you can also submit sites that you feel are worthy. You do need to have some specific info about the site, like author names, description, genre etc. So you can't just willy nilly select any old site, it has to be done reasonably carefully.
