'Cliche is probably a little harsh - trend is probably a more...'
From the comments on '2007: More Web Design Trends & Cliches'
Cliche is probably a little harsh - trend is probably a more accurate term. Give it another year or so, though, and some of the styles might be a little more tired :)
Things have definitely got a lot richer, more complex, in the last year - the web's slow to react to changes, but broadband penetration is high and CSS support is better than it's ever been (although some distance from perfect).
