    I think Digg has a good one too. It was a Oregon Trail theme and said “Digg broke an axle” lol

    The 404 page is one of those details that many new web designers overlooks. In fact I’m a web designer in Houston, TX. and I often forget to style the 404 pages of websites I have designed. This post has inspired that in me and I will try an incorporate more design on the 404 pages I design. Thanks for the great post.

    Great selection here. I too agree that the Digg one was pretty cool.

    The Google 404 page however could be greatly improved – I blogged about it here: http://pjstudio.co.uk/blog/google-should-improve-their-404-error-page/

    I think what all this links above… not interesting. real 404 error page must be fully informative. minimum graphic, maximum info and navigation

    Great overview. What a lot of 404 do wrong is telling the user that the user did something wrong. But YOU did something wrong. A big difference.

    And if you didnt do anything wrong. Give the user the impression that you did.

    The 404 page with the title ‘Play Again’ gave me an idea to embed a game instead of a pic. The first 404 page of a man sitting on a chair is fantastic too.
