Dear web designer, let’s stop breaking the affordance of scrolling

If you don’t like to be told what to do, why do you tell others what to do? 😉 While I like some of the attempts you’ve made, sometimes the simplest solution is the best solution, sometimes there’s no imediate fold, sometimes a whole bunch of repositioning the DOM and and animate stuff make a website lag. I think it’s worth to experiment and explore, but in some cases, the scrorrow is still the best solution for those 9% who wouldn’t scroll otherwise.

I also wonder who exactly was tested, people doing remote testing for companies aren’t exactly those who might represent the average person who doesn’t spend much time on the internet (other than Facebook) and therefore is less used to the latest web-trends or doesn’t spend time to explore websites.

Like what you read? Give M a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
