Must Read: 8 Web Usability Problems

Wednesday, June 14th, 2006

Webmonkey talked about 8 common web usability problems that I think all web designers must read. It's definitely an article worth reading as Jakob Nielsen and Hoa Loranger really had did a good job to identify those problems.

A summary of the article:

  1. Links that don't change color when visited
  2. Breaking the back button
  3. Opening new browser windows
  4. Pop-up windows
  5. Design elements that look like advertisements
  6. Violating Web-wide conventions
  7. Vaporous content and empty hype
  8. Dense content and unscannable text

Do you have any other point to add? Glad I didn't break any of the rules!
