Here is an interesting article from Smashing Magazine about web design usability that I’ve already read over a few times.
The entire article is interesting, but I think one of the most important points to notice here is that people’s behaviors on the web are changing. The article cites older studies that indicate people rarely scroll to view content on a web page — and then more recent studies that found the opposite. People have become used to scrolling as they become more familiar with the web.
I think this highlights the importance of keeping our web design skills up-to-date, and never assuming that we should continue to use strategies just because that’s the way we’ve always done it.
