forest for the trees

forest for the treesAn impressive interactive design concept supported by excellent functionality: this is one of the first 4.0 generation sites that really delivers - concept, visuals, sound, interactivity + variety.

This site has since fallen under neglect, but could still be a good place for a scripting beginner to learn some cool JavaScript effects, as well as 100 other places in WWW. This was just one of the first clean originals.... More
