Do you know any good research highlighting the disadvantages of using
At my company we're having a discussion whether we should stop using
them for our global navigation due to usability concerns. The
discussion evolved into an opinion war between UX and Marketing teams.
I'm trying to convince my colleges that drop-downs for navigation are
- users don't expect them
- "user's decide first, move second"
- are difficult to operate (menus disappear, Fitt's law, etc)
- category pages (aka pathway/navigational) help users make better
decisions and prevent pogo-sticking
I would appreciate any help, and sorry for my bad English.
