    Hi Jim,

    You’ve done a really great job! Congratz with the 5000 websites. Keep it up. I know tons of css directories and inspiration sites. But the fridge is the only one I check daily. Simple but great usability, an amazing taste of web design and daily updates are the main reasons that I come back here. Design fridge deserves a lot more recognition.

    Anyway keep up the good work! ;)

    Thanks Tim :)

    It’s great to hear such +ve feedback.

    It’s really useful to know the reasons why everyone uses and comes back to DF. I want to make sure the new design retains all of these things.

    Since you tag each entry with multiple tags, would it not be possible to sift through the entries by selecting multiple tags, instead of only being able to choose one? I would really like to see this happen!

    Tremendous efforts in maintaining this site. It’s a great resource for me and many others. Thank you!

    You’ve created one of the best inspiration sites on the net, dude. Please keep it up.

    I visit daily…. heck, I’d pay a monthly fee to get the content you collect.

    Cheers from Canada!

    Oh, and as a possible improvement…

    It would be cool if we hovered over the images and got a screenshot of the entire site… sort of like the thumbnails you get in your default Chrome or Safari startpages.

    Whatcha think?

    I agree with Owen about the hover thing, keep it up!

    The design is already very nice, but I’m sure you’ll think of ways to improve it. Unfortunately, I can’t. Haha.

    Congratulations for hitting 5000!

    Agree with the first post, you definitely don’t get the recognition you deserve. Never a day passes without having a look at what’s new! Keep up the good work and here’s to the next 5000!

    Hi Jim,

    Firstly congratulations. 5000 sites is quite a feat. I’ve certainly found this site to be a great source of inspiration over the past couple of years.

    I have not checked in here for a while because I thought it was getting boring, but
    the last several posts are great quality so I guess
    I’ll add you back to my daily bloglist.

    You deserve it friend :)
