Here are five 2019 rising trends in Web Design that have increasingly become popular and I feel like they are taking us back to 2005.
Everyone is used to the way this works. One click, one step back in a site's history.
Instead it throws you all the way back to the landing page or worse yet, Google! This breaks the multiverse.
This is a pet peeve of mine since I often drag links to the top of the browser to quickly create new Tabs. I use a Wacom stylus all day, and it's become my default pointing device - dragging and dropping is second nature now.
Some sites don't allow this and some even disable the handy Shift + Click or Ctrl + Click shortcuts for opening New Tabs.
We did this already people! Remember Flash? Seriously most websites don't need this.
It's especially slow if I only need a phone number and not all the images.
I get it, on-boarding experience and whatnot. But you can't make it an adventure for existing users to simply Log In.
Why does it have to be several clicks for us?
There's a fine line between Interactive Experience and User Experience.
Don't sacrifice one for the other.
