    You’ve missed the best one of all, SIte Inspire http://siteinspire.net/

  • http://daverupert.com Dave Rupert

    Site Inspire is actually rarely CSS. It’s mostly flash sites.

    And this post just about blew my mind. A CSS gallery doing a round up of CSS galleries doing roundups of CSS sites found on other galleries. Meta.

  • http://www.csswebsites.nl/ Marc

    Thanks for including our website!

  • http://www.designshack.co.uk David Appleyard

    Dave: I appreciate the irony, but am sure a few people will find it really useful :-)

    Don’t worry, we have lots of non-roundup content in the pipeline as well.

    CSS galleries are a fantastic source of inspiration. Are they the new link directories though? With all these services popping up to automatically submit your site to 100’s of galleries. I just hope they don’t get ruined by spammers and some degree of quality is maintained.
